About the project
Göteborg municipality invited MONSTRUM to participate in developing an area of the new playground in the Plikta park, Göteborg.
The Blue whale in Gothenburg.
What is better than being swallowed up by a blue whale on a Sunday morning or maybe on a Tuesday afternoon? The whale is the world’s largest mammal, weighing over 120 tons, It occurs in many stories like: Pinocchio and Moby Dick! The whale swims peacefully away in the vast ocean between seaweed and sharks! and a lot of kids! The kids love to challenge there imagination and motor skills. That is the beginning of a good game.
You can climb up on to the whale’s back, either by crawling through the mouth and into the stomach.
The whale is 15 meter long, 3.2 meters wide, 3 meter tall. The exterior is painted blue-gray and pink inside, with water-based wood preservative.
