THE LEGACY OF THE WHALE OF VEJLE
Vejle, Denmark - 2018
City of Vejle
As part of building a new city area of the northern dock of Vejle Harbour, the city wanted a playground area to make it more family friendly. The reason for chosing a whale as the main object of the playground is inspired by the true story of a beached whale in Vejle in 2010. To honour its memory, the MONSTRUM whale was constructed. It's designed with a big slide on its back and has a big, happy mouth for the kids to climb in through.
The playground is filled with seaweed for the kids to balance on and climb across.
The slide on the whale is 2,5 meters tall.
THE STORY OF THE BEACHED WHALE OF VEJLE
The whale can be entered through its mouth. Rope is hanging from its upper mouth to simulate the whale's baleens.
The insides are designed with as much care as the outside. We have made space for both adults and kids to ensure a good interaction and play value.
