The Park

Stockholm South General Hospital Södersjukhuset, Sjukhusbacken 10, Stockholm, Sweden
Commissioned by the Stockholm County Council

The Park consists of six sculptures rising in the two courtyards, which are situated on the both sides of the hospital’s main entrance passage. There are three sculptures placed in each courtyard. Their dimensions and placing in the courtyard's landscape create a park-like ambience, visible from all surrounding hospital spaces.

During daytime the tree crowns are icy-white with transparent branches. The whiteness of the crowns increases with the intensity of daylight. When night falls the tree crowns become luminous. With increasing darkness the light becomes more intensive. During the night hours Park becomes alive, changing subtly appearance through different soft colours.

Inaugurated in 2001
Upgraded lighting system in 2018
