There is a heavy progression of street culture and action sports in Greenland. Due to the long winters, winter sports naturally make up a large part of that scene, but the number of active skateboarders and BMX-riders is steadily rising. Together with the association Urban Greenland, we created the first full-scale skatepark in Greenland, located in the capital, Nuuk.
The skatepark, which has footprint of 500 m2, is an integrated part of the schoolyard for the new school in Qinngorput. Local engagement has been a huge part of the project, from reviewing design ideas to the actual welding and manufacturing several elements found throughout the skatepark.
“All the users are impressed by the design and very happy about the new skatepark” – Project manager, Nuuk municipality.
