The New Hedeland

SLA is responsible for the development of The New Hedeland - a 1,500 ha cultural landscape. In SLA's development plan the area's unique nature and 10,000 years of cultural history complement each other in a coherent concept, creating new space for co-creation, interaction and cognition. Through three strategic alterations, Hedeland’s physical expression and narrative is enhanced, dramatized and organized. Holes are dug deeper, flat fields become mountains, and a connecting trail takes visitors through the area's best experiences. The wildness of nature is preserved and reinforced. And communities and companies are invited actively in through a collaborative process that makes Hedeland a scene for communal life, volunteerism and a new view of nature. Hedeland becomes a pioneering model for experience destinations based on voluntary work and human creativity.

In Hedeland, the idea of the conventional culture house is moved out in the open. Everyone can participate. Hedeland is developed and created by and for the people who come here. Hedeland is the place for digging, transformation and action.
