Open international competition
The project is located at Movatnet in Sogn og Fjordane, and connect an existing open air museum with archive spaces inside the mountain. The old croft gets to play the lead role while the new museum's secluded location provides views of the open air museum and the lake.
The building is located at the interface between plane and slope and between the cultivated and the natural. The large central space is formed as an interpretation of different qualities from these topographies.
The building contain public facilities, exhibition spaces, administration and workshops. Public functions are organized around a central distribution line spanning from the entrance in the east to the café and outdoor scene in the west, while the workshops are located downstairs in direct contact with an outdoor working area and the road. More exhibition areas and administration are located higher up.
