Hedehusene City Park was laid out in 1989. The city park was designed by landscape architect Malene Hauxner and houses the town cultural and community centre. The park was not being used so much, unfortunately, so Høje-Taastrup Municipality decided to revitalize it. In 2015, a number of landscape sculptures were created together with a ‘path of experiences’, which conveys and stages the local industrial heritage and landscape. The design was developed by Spektrum Architects in a process involving extensive citizen and service-user involvement. Katinka Hauxner has served as a process consultant and strategic advisor for the project.
The involvement of local citizens and stakeholders in the development of the city park, including an illuminated Halloween walk with local residents and an ‘involving picnic’ with a treasure hunt and music in the city park.
Facilitation of working group meetings.
Professional input to the programme and conceptual design.
