This project is focusing on a future park that will surround Hyllie water tower in the outskirts of Malmö. The water tower will be located in the central part of the new building area Hyllievång. The park will function as a town park with a special focus on water. The water council of the municipality, Va-verket, has for the last 7 years built up and been in charge for a pedagogical programme in the water tower, were schoolchildren come to learn about the cycle of water and how we use water in our daily life. In the park they want to build a new part that gives experience of water, as a compliment to the information in the tower. What will that park look like, and what shall it be constructed of? How do you bring water to the surface in a park? How can landscape architecture work to enhance the presence of water and make people more interested in water issues? In the search to find the answers to all my questions I have meet with people, read books and visited different places. What comes out is a combination of new experiences and knowledge about edutaintment and knowledge that I gained during my education. The proposal is acting as a base for the pedagogical programme and experimental researches, with different environments and biotopes. From the alder march to a dry steppe biotope. Waterfalls and fountains with interaction possibilities sets the focus on the joyful experience which creates interest and memories with water. With different materials and details that associate with water and water issues I want people to reflect on water issues and how important water is for all life on earth.
