Lund Cathedral in Brunnshög


Hage, seen from above.

A few hundred meter south of the location of European Spallation Source (ESS), MAX IV and the Loop, the contruction of a convent garden called “Hage” has just begun. The garden will add value to the place, where a residential area eventually also will be built.

Mats Persson, cathedral treasurer and director for the development project Råängen, imply that a different type of sustainability than just financial sustainability is required to make a place attractive. Hage is one of several strategic projects aiming to create value and dialogue in the development area Råängen.

Mats hopes that the medieval Lund Cathedral can have a role in a modern context of Science Village and the whole area, “I think we can benefit from each other as we build a new neighbourhood. Our focus is always the human and cultural aspects. Collaborations are always important, which is why The Loop will be an important player – to gather people across borders.”

How do we get culture into a place like Brunnshög, that are built from scratch?
“A concert hall is a good example, it does not usually exist in a traditional research site, but it is a great proposal! Life, movement and culture are important!

The garden, seen as the square in the picture, is expected to be completed in the summer of 2021.
