“How can architectural design transform and revive an industrial landscape into a place for recreation and education?”

Tyra Wingren Bergman and Elsa Sjöblom are two architecture students who studied at Chalmers and they chose to use Cementa’s large quarry as their case study for their dissertation on the transformation of industrial areas close to the city. They wanted to investigate how architecture can make the place accessible to humans. And how what is built can strengthen the connections between geology, biology and cultural history, in a pedagogical way.

At the beginning of their research, they discovered Platåbergens Geopark and contacted us to get guidance, inspiration and to hear our thoughts and ideas about the quarry. In June 2021, they presented their work to us!
