I finally finished the commission, Mastebroen, for the City Council of Holbaek.
Based on Holbæks history as a harbour city, and especially the fact that Holbæk origined around the “Ship-Bridge”, I have been interested in the image of shipmasts in the harbour.
For centuries the life of a harbour could be read by the amount of shipmasts that was moving in its waters. From a long distance these masts was the image of the relation with exotic parts of the world. The ships would bring foreign loads, new people – and if life would get too tough, they were the way out- for the dream or the escape.
The project is created with support from Hasløv and Kjærgaard Architects.
