SWECO / Aspelin Ramm NO
Engineering and architecture consultancy Sweco and property developer Aspelin Ramm collaborate on Street Corner Society
Sweco, Aspelin Ramm and students are a part of the exhibition Mission Neighbourhood – (Re)forming communities with the project Street Corner Society.
Last summer, six students within the fields of architecture, sociology, public health and engineering, explored four very different neighbourhoods in central Oslo. The pandemic was loosening its grip on society, and the students investigated how physical surroundings affect our desire and ability to be social. Inspired by Whyte, the students used methods like participant observation and interviews, as well as photo registration, to document the neighbourhoods.
The result is both a rich reading of Oslo’s neighbourhoods and a guide to creating more socially inclusive street corners and places.
