TUNNELEN features an illuminating climbing wall. We wanted the tunnel to be locally connected to Ammerud, and designed the light as an abstract telling of Ammerud's history through 100 years. In the 1960's the amount of inhabitants exploded due to building of highrises, and this story is told through the line.
We made this video together with the inhabitants, as a way of including and engaging them in the project. It shows how light and social activities can bring back life to the tunnel.
As design students we got the opportunity to change the life of inhabitants at Ammerud by completely transforming a place people avoid to a place where people love spending time. Construction will finish in june 2015.
“Tunnelen” features an illuminating climbing wall, a creative exercise area and Norway’s longest monkey bar.
The challenge was to get more people to use the pathway system by including the values; safety, activity and pride. After research and concept development, we decided together with our employer on concentrating the delivery on the biggest and darkest tunnel. The result is the concept “Tunnelen”.
The project was in collaboration with the Municipality of Oslo.
