About twenty of Malmö’s municipal playgrounds are unique, purpose-built attractions that follow a particular theme. The aim is that the playgrounds will bring children’s curiosity and stimulate their imagination – by presenting exciting, challenging, and new playground equipment.
On behalf of the City of Malmö, a new playground was planned with a theme of a circus, designed by landscape architect Isa Hilldetun and Anja Hesselgren. I developed a lighting proposal to strengthen the feeling of the theme, with a circus tent over the playground and integrated lighting in the locomotive located at the playground. The locomotive will be illuminated gently inside to provide security and look like a nice place to visit, even in the dark hours of the day.
