3 x jøssingfjord
open competition for Jøssingfjord museum 2010
As a testing ground for ideas we decided to explore three different directions in this competition. These concepts are contrasting in all aspects – proposing different position on site, massing strategy, spatial concept and materiality.
Kolderupsenteret is a volume that itself is an exhibition of stone. The building is long and narrow with flexible exhibition space; the façade features all the 20 county stones of Norway.
G8 atomizes the different functions of the museum into a settlement of volumes around the existing buildings. The concept proposes a relationship with the surroundings through paths and allows for expanded exhibitions into the landscape.
Square Cut* is a perfect cubical volume; compact but spacious. Exhibitions are underground while auditoriums and public levels are elevated to benefit from the views up and down the valley.
