Competition proposal - 2015

Size

7000 m2

The proposal for the Viking Museum is a new landscape inspired by the viking roots which will provide visitors and researchers a unique experience. The vision of the project is the conception of a platform for cultural inter-action that beams as a new icon for the city. As a world-leading center for communication the museum will pre-serve and respect the traditions of viking history and will also accentuate the existing architecture and nature of the site.

The existing building is the key point of this project. The preservation of the existing building is imperative as it the main element of the new museum.

The new extension is actually a hidden element that embellishes the existing building.
