Project: Visitor center, Berg Slussar
Client: Göta Kanalbolaget
The Göta Kanal, links Sweden’s East and West coast, it is one of Sweden most popular tourist destination, with many hiking, cruising or cycling along its beautiful shores. Originally built at the beginning of the XIXth century it has begun an extensive renovation program called "Göta Kanal 2.0" to ensure its future.
Expology created a visitor center showcasing the history and technology behind the 200 year old canal as well as explaining the current work being undertaken. It is located at one of the canal's most iconic location, the Berg Slussar lock gates.
Using historical blueprints, films, letters and photographs from the Göta Kanal archives, Expology has been able to present both the technical achievements and the personal stories behind the canal.
