MEETING PLACES ALONG LAGAN

In Vaggeryd municipality, in Småland, Sweden, Kragh & Berglund created a design to intertwine life and nature along the river, Lagan, which runs through the area. The project is part of the municipality's 2020 goal emphasizing the nature and culture of the area and making the beautiful nature areas accessible and attractive to the its citizens.

THE LIFE ALONG LAGAN

To create coherence on the hiking route that runs along the Lagan, rest areas have been set up along the river, with information boards, benches and shelter from the rain. The squares along the river serve as identity-creating meeting points within the city's new, green infrastructure. They form spaces to meet for activities, fitness, and play for young and old.
