XP925 - THE LARVIK FOLKEPARK
The Larvik Folkepark is a visionary project for Larvik's harbour area, aiming to create a multifunctional, and constantly evolving, public space with a strong sense of community. Inspired by the idea of the Swedish "Folkets Park," it offers recreational amenities, cultural hubs, and green spaces. The plan includes transforming streetscapes, enhancing pedestrian access, and redefining the railway crossing. The park's identity and clear borders foster inclusion and escape from city life.
