This project was built in connection with the walkabout project (Breddelangs), which is a local initiative organized to bring awareness to the Lahelle river area. The green park surrounding the pavilion has become quite a popular place for local families despite the fact that the lot was formerly labeled as a  toxic, polluted space. The area has been transformed quite a bit recently in order to erase traces of its former industrial past: new real estate projects have been approved and a community arts center has opened recently. To further enhance the area along the riverbanks, local municipalities have plans to develop a large network of pedestrian and bicycle connections . + Kollaboratoriet Via Arch Daily Photos by Feileacán McCormick and Anna Andrea Vik Aniksdal Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: “sustainable architecture” , Architecture , community space , Eco Architecture , eco building , Gjennomsikte Pavilion , green architecture , Kollaboratoriet , norway , Norway Architecture , Norwegian , Porsgrunn , public buildings , public space , riverside , skien , Sustainable Materials , theater , theatre , theatre space , timber structures , urban development

Whether you want to call it yarn-bombing or guerrilla knitting , this craze has spread across the world in a colorful display of environmentally friendly public art. Isabeau Joubert has done something similar over in Cape Town, South Africa, giving two vintage bicycles a dazzling makeover by using brightly colored wool in a burst of yarn graffiti . The crocheted bicycles were a gift to not only their owners but to the city of Cape Town itself; a piece of public art that aims to inspire others to get on their bikes.
