Vasagatan RGBBack to Projects list
Through a combination of important qualities such as public life and activity (red), urban greenery (green) and rainwater management (blue), parts of the central street Vasagatan in Stockholm are to be transformed into a highly valued link in the central city street network. Through ‘Vasagatan RGB’ one fifth of the streets hardscape will be converted into a platform for social interaction combined with the possibility of large scale infiltration of rainwater. New clusters of diverse tree species will be planted along the street making Vasagatan three times as green as it is today. These partly ‘sunken gardens’ will attract visitors through programmed activities fitted with different types of equipment suitable for the space. Primary and secondary seating opportunities will be distributed throughout the stretch for people to stop, sit and take part in public life and the activities occurring.
