Art Museum in Førde, Norway, by C.F. Møller
September 15, 2012

C.F. Møller Architects Sogn og Fjordane Kunstmuseum FørdeC.F. Møller Architects has designed a new art museum in Førde north of Bergen in Norway, the new Sogn & Fjordane Art Museum. The museum lies like a crystal-clear block of ice that has slid down from the surrounding mountains and the architecture is inspired by the landscape: In Førde the mountains are visible everywhere, and Jostedalsbreen, the largest glacier on the European mainland, lies in close proximity to the town.
The crystalline form provides an asymmetrical plan solution, with varying displacements in the facade. The facade is clad in white glass with a network of angled lines, reminiscent of the fracture lines in ice. This network also defines the irregular window apertures. In the evening these lines are illuminated, so that the museum lies like a sparkling block in the middle of the town’s darkness.
C.F. Møller Architects were also responsible for the design of the SEIF office building which is the museum’s closest neighbour, and for a residential complex on the same site which is presently under construction.
