The Mirror project illuminates the town square

The Norwegian town of Rjukan Beginning, is suffering by sunless days, from September until March. The aim of the mirror project is to illuminate the town square of Rjukan with reflected sunlight.

Rjukan is a town surrounded by mountains which prevent the sun from reaching the floor of the valley for five months of the year.

The project will result in a permanent installation which, with the help of 100m2 mirror will redirect the sun down into the valley. The square will become a sunny meeting place in a town otherwise in shadow.
