Notodden has decided to join several cultural functions such as a cafe, a museum, and a library under one roof. This project programming allows for the possibility of creating a building where people of different ages and interests can meet and interact. As a tribut to the history of the iste, the roof of the builidng is laid out as an amphitheater which spirals around the old shipping dock, and the dock itself houses a floating stage. Much like in a Greek theater, the surrounding landscape becomes the scenography.
I was part of the design team on this project while employed at WE Architecture in Copenhagen, Denmark.
