The temporary meeting point, designed by Eriksen Skajaa Architects together with a group of local youths is the first of a series of temporary installations in Ski, Norway.
Ski, a small city outside Oslo, is going through major urban changes as a consequence of the in-development high-speed train connection to Oslo. Local youths have been participating in the planning process and have especially expressed the need for meeting spaces in the city.
The temporary meeting point, designed by Eriksen Skajaa Architects together with a group of local youths is a space where young people can hang out in the city. It is the first of a series of temporary installations with the purpose of making Ski an attractive and vibrant place.
The box contains different rooms where you can sit alone or in a small group. If you want, you can climb up under the roof and get an overview of what is happening on the square, but you can also sit slightly hidden inside the box. Artist Christoffer Furru has decorated the box with youngsters.
