As the Central Park in New York was built before the Manhattan grid was condensed around it – RUTEN has remained as a buffer in the urban development in anticipation of something bigger.
Sandnes' historic center was a small-scaled urban structure with the country’s longest shopping street. The new district by the waterfront has another dimension – scaled up to the old industrial structures on site.
By overlapping two adjacent contexts, the new RUTEN can be adapted to both.
Our proposal for RUTEN reflects the city’s development and establishes RUTEN as a natural center and Sandnes as a future city with strong roots and a proud local history.
The ring connects and creates the new transport hub and public space below an attractive unifying roof.
RUTEN will be the new CENTRAL PARK – Identity creator and pivot point.
The strategy is to combine:
The urban park balances all occasions; Intimate _ Open, Specific_ Flexible, Small scale_big scale.
It allows for the representative and planned, as well as encourages the spontaneous, informal and unexpected.
