As part of the the expansion of the university town of Uppsala, just north of Stockholm, the project by Karlsson Wachenfeldt Arkitekter for the Studenternas IP is a sports field with long traditions situated by the river Fyrisån. Located in the center of the town within the park, the design project is part of a major re-development of the south river area that includes housing, parks, sport facilities and infrastructure. More images and architects’ description after the break.
Our friend Mattias Karlsson from karlsson wachenfeldt arkitekter sent us this info on their latest project. Dalslandsring is a new center for all kinds of motorsport in the small community of Färgelanda in Dalsland, Sweden. It will accomodate over 30 000 spectators and includes 5 different race tracks, exhibition area, driver education, fire station, motel, camping and restaurants.
Dalslandsring is situated in the car-crazy west sweden and it´s one piece of a puzzle to draw interested visitors to the area. This is to be a facility who stands for a new generation of enviromentally friendly racing. Cars runs on eco-fuels, Dalslandsring produces its own energy and spectators arrive by train.
The Project is based around a central complex with spectator stands, service and the racecontrol tower.
