National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, Oslo/ Norway, 2010

The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design gets on two levels into relation with the existing structure of the city: With two existing buildings on the site the museum creates a new entrance courtyard on the ground level, introducing the museum with sculptures and creating an external area for the cafe. The museum has a similar eave height as the neighboring buildings. Looking from the pier to the building, the various parts of the building are arranged offset/staggering up to the higher horizontal element of the alabaster hall. On this second level, the museum gets into relation with the existing monuments in this area, the dignified town/city hall and the Akershus Fortress.
