Artist: Erlend Leirdal (2000).
Leirdal's design of the square on Jomfrugata (a street) provides Fjordgata with breathing space.
The square is designed with openness and austerity in mind, and features three clearly defined levels leading from the urban space towards the canal. The main space with cobblestones features a pattern repeating details from an archaeological finding from the Middle Ages from downtown Trondheim. This gives the square a historical feel. We are now able to use this open space where people once arrived by sea and pulled their boats onto the shore, offered their goods for sale and mingled with the townspeople. Here the city returns to its close contact with the water. The artist has attached great importance to the craftsmanship of the construction, and has fetched artisans from afar to shape the stones in place. The wrought iron works are also crafted by artisans.
