Walk the line

“Walk the line” is Kolab Architects + Jørgen Tandbergs submission to the 2015 NordicBuilt Cities challenge on revitalising Trygve Lies plass.

The proposal suggests a light superstructure which in the centre frames and structures the space of the new square. The square contains shallow pools, a fruit garden, a stage, several sports and games areas, allotment gardens, and an outdoor gym. The lighted u-glass ceiling gives light to the square and provides necessary infrastructure for the adjacent commercial programs, in order for them to expand their activities outdoors. As an overall ambition the project facilitates new activities and contemporary ways of experiencing public space via a minimum of architectural interventions.

Kolab Architects consists of three people with a background from both art and architecture, engaged in a wide range of activities such as exhibitions, competitions and teaching, in addition to being an architecture studio. Kolab Architects also established and hosts Kollaboratoriet.
Kollaboratoriet is an interdisciplinary collective of architects and artists, consisting of both in-house and external collaborators. The physical studio acts as the main workspace of seven people working with architecture, art, set design, illustration, graphic design and programming.
The collective was established in 2013 and is located in Oslo city centre, where we work independently and collectively in all overlapping fields.
