Nordlys

An urban installation bringing life to the city centre

Nordlys (NorthernLights) is an interactive urban installation located on a city square in the centre of Horsens. It was developed in cooperation with the Municipality of Horsens as part of the initiative Feel the City, which consisted of a number of initiatives in 2013 to create more activity and revive the city.

“The shops around the square expressed concern that there was only poor activity at the site, and mostly during the few market days. Otherwise, the city centre was completely empty. But the swings have contributed to bring life and activity into the square.  The swings attract people of all ages, and the retailers are very satisfied with the installation.”  

– Peter Sørensen, Mayor of Horsens Municipality
