During the autumn of 2012, Oslo municipality organized a closed competition to create proposals for how Oslo’s nine-kilometre long seaside promenade can be developed as an integral and attractive part of the city. Ljusarkitektur has been part of a team of architects, landscape architects and engineers. The results of the closed competition were exhibited to the general public in the middle of January 2013 and are currently being judged by the jury.
Ljusarkitekturs part of the project was to develop a strategic approach and a “tool-box” with light characters for the entire distance. The lighting consists of both a general lighting that builds on principles of Oslo’s lighting program for the area and the construction of identity and social light to enhance the character of the place and create areas for social interaction. Some of the light characters are applicable for the entire distance, while others are specific to a particular location or area.
We have worked in both an overview scale and in three details to clearly illustrated the concept.
The municipality is to proceed with one or more proposals from the closed competition for their implementation both in the short and long term.
