New Public Commission - Rain Square (Regntorg), Gothenburg


Bigert & Bergström`s proposal won the the public commission of the development of the Harry Hjörnes square in Gothenburg. 

The starting point of their proposal was to include the rain as an element and bring it into the urban space as an experience. The art works in the square should interact with the rain and invites the visitor to activate several senses at the same time. The artist duo’s ambition is to create a dynamic place that both discusses nature as an urban element but also questions the goals around how the city and its architecture interact with weather and wind and not least the rain.
