Everyone should feel welcome and part of the community in Bjørvika. In order for this to happen we need to know the public’s needs and thoughts, so we can plan and develop this area accordingly. Too often we’ve experienced people being engaged when the decisions are already made. Through this initiative, our key ambition is to be one step ahead, explains Kjell Kalland, CEO at Hav Eiendom.
At the southernmost tip of Grønlikaia, the plan suggests a 20 acres big island. Today, hardly any plants or wildelife inhabit this area, as it is dominated by shipping containers, concrete and industrial rubbish.
As part of the exhibition, we’ve built a mini island with concrete from today’s Grønlikaia, and plants, trees, flowers and soil specific to the Oslo fjord flora. After the exhibition, the plants and trees will be placed at Grønlikaia as a seed bank for future vegetation. The exhibition will literally “Add colour to Grønlikaia.”
Developing the newest part of Oslo, Grønlikaia in Bjørvika, is more than just a city development project, it is a project about planning for our urban future in a holistic and sustainable way. Bjørvika, at the heart of Oslo, is a place that inspires people of all generations, backgrounds and cultures to meet, live and work. In times when polarization, cultural differences and social inclusion are more important topics than ever, Hav Eiendom has invited the public to participate in shaping the city of tomorrow.
