Strategy for developing Elgsletta

0.00

Type: Feasibility study, design project
Client: Skanska and Entra
Program: park, process design, bridge
Size: 12 000 m2
Location: Oslo, Norway
Status: Ongoing

Team: Anne Bjørndal, Kenneth Dahlgren, Ivar Lyngner, Christian Gauss

In the autumn of 2015, Rodeo was commissioned by a group of developers, led by Skanska and Entra, to lead a workshop and develop a strategy for programming and upgrading a green space known as "Elgsletta". Elgsletta, a relatively big green park by Akerselva in downtown Oslo is rarely used. 

Skanska, Entra and other developers are investing in the transformation of the surrounding area, and want to help the municipality by enhancing the quality of the park, making it more attractive for locals and visitors alike. 

Rodeo developed a strategy outlining eight recommendations for how to improve the park and the surrounding areas. Important topics are improving safety, an identity relating to the history of the river, transforming the surrounding streets and suggestions for experimental temporary program in the park. 

One concrete recommendation was to establish a pedestrian bridge, in order to improve the accessibility of the area and increase the number of people passing through.

Rodeo has been commissioned to design a temporary bridge, hopefully to be opened by Autumn 2016.
