Utsikten: MYCKET

An enchanted garden is emerging – a playground that invites you all day, every day.

Utsikten is ArkDes’s secret backyard on Skeppsholmen. In 2024, the shape of the space is led by the art, architecture, and design group MYCKET. Using traditional craft techniques, recycling, and natural materials MYCKET designs an enchanted garden that will grow and transform as children play and create throughout the summer.

Explore the place by yourself or take part in one of the free workshops held during the summer where you can create birdbaths, learn how to work with clay, invent imaginary log animals, and much more. Utsikten opens for play and co-creation on June 15.

About Utsikten

For several years, ArkDes has developed a method to elevate the creativity of children and young people through co-creation in architecture and design. Last year’s success, Bygg din lekplats, a pop-up play module at Utsikten and in Kungsträdgården, is followed up this year with a full playground and children’s co-creation becomes a permanent feature on Skeppsholmen. In 2024, Utsikten is designed by the art, architecture, and design group MYCKET.

MYCKET ↗ was founded in 2012 by artists, designers and architects Mariana Alves Silva, Dr. Katarina Bonnevier and Thérèse Kristiansson. They work with equality, social sustainability, and the more-than-human within art, design, architecture, and public spaces.
