Studio Ossidiana: How to Make a Public Space

Hear from Studio Ossidiana and learn about the process behind 'Utomhusverket 2021'

Studio Ossidiana: Utomhusverket 2021 is a documentary film detailing the design intentions, construction, and first moments of public activity at the museum’s outdoor installation for 2021. Revealing the process behind the project, the film presents Studio Ossidiana’s unique approach to the hand-built craft of concrete and terrazzo casting in their own words and alongside the craftspeople that they collaborate with. Utomhusverket 2021 is accessible seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day until 10 October, 2021.

Conceived as an “archipelago” of activities and encounters between people, plants, birds, and minerals, Utomhusverket 2021 celebrates the potential of public space. A planted pond offers relief from the summer heat for both birds and people. Tall perches, designed for migratory birds, cast shadows across a ground of shells, loam, and gravels. The ground elements combine to create new soils that can be shaped by digging, walking, lying, playing, and more. A sundial marks the passing of time, while radiating the captured heat of the sun. An enclosed garden offers shade, shelter, and berries to birdlife. Handcrafted terrazzo ‘rocks’ afford opportunities for play, display, and gathering.
