Alternative Growth

Alternative Growth

Alternative Growth is a collaboration between second year students at Metal Art and the City of Gothenburg. With eight sculptures around central Gothenburg the students help the city get a little greener.

The Parks and Landscape Administration Office at the City of Gothenurg wanted to offer greenery in places which lack natural conditions for growth. Students were also asked to adapt their designs to the charachter of each location and highlight the genius loci of the place. An other requirement was to consider a construction that is repeatable and therefore possible to multiply and adapt to other locations. 

The sculptures are placed in following locations:
Esperantoplatsen
Göteborgsoperan
Kungstorget
Skanstorget
Rosenlundsbron

The sculptures will remain until september.
