Designed by Carl Fredrik Svenstedt Architect, BORABoras park pavilions and skating rink is located in Borås, Sweden. A glazed winter garden and a bandstand are sited in the park as rounded forms, thin perforated shells clearly visible from the city centre. The shells form a meeting point where several paths intersect, thereby framing an open glade towards the south, towards a skating rink, a children’s playground in the sunshine. A third shell, the closed sphere of a machine shed reinforces this orientation of the park.
In summertime the open glade will have outdoor seating from the winter garden café, bandstand concerts will fill the green-space of the skating rink, and children can climb on playground structures resembling the pavilions. In the winter, concerts will be held inside the pavilion, while skaters skate around the islands on the ice rink. The area around the pavilions will be paved with stone tiles with large perforations so that grass and trees can grow and the glade remains green.
