Parklets 2.0 Car-free city, Oslo

Together with Vestre, Studio Oslo Landskapsarkitekter (SOLA) has developed a robust modular Parklets system that can be combined and adapted to suit urban needs. The project is an important contribution to ‘Bilfritt Byliv’, Oslo’s car-free city life project, in which cars are being phased out of the city centre by 2020. Oslo has invested in temporary installations, with Parklets playing a leading role. For the municipality, it is important for Parklets to be accessible, and also robust enough to withstand climatic and local conditions. Parklets are acting as a pilot project in the transition between today’s Oslo and the car-free city of the future, as well as facilitating the dialogue between the community and the municipality before the council commits to permanent changes in the streetscape.
