Some more photos from my walk to the Textile Fashion Center & Museum on Saturday.
Colourful flowers on the railing of one of the many bridges crossing the river in Borås town centre.
This plant in one of the parks was recently mentioned in our local newspaper. It’s an agave plant. When grown in greenhouses (as ours are – they are taken in every winter and planted outdoors again only for the summer), it is rare for them to bloom – and it takes decades before they do. But this one is about to now. Whether I’ll happen to be passing again at just the right time to take photos of it at its best, remains to be seen.
The Textile Fashion Center, including Textile Museum and Textile College, café/restaurant and a number of textile related businesses.
The sculpture House of Knowledge by Jaume Plensa, acquired by our town last year and placed in a symbolically powerful position between the Textile College and the rest of the University.
Lounge area in the entrance hall within the Center.
The sculpture Cloned Frogs on Gala Dress by William Sweetlove (that for a while seemed to appear all over town) now resides here, too.
You’ll find several older posts of mine both about the Textile Museum and the sculptures by clicking on the label Textile Fashion Center below.
