spanish firm herreros arquitectos have won first prize for their
‘lambda’ design, in the international architectural competition
for the munch museum in oslo, norway.

lambda creates a generous invitation both to the museum and to the public
access of the area in general. the location of the museum on paulsenkaia
leaves the area south of the opera open to a public park and recreational
landmark in the middle of the bay overlooking the fjord, in close contact
both with the opera and the museum. the project strengthens the river mouth,
opens the landscape and gives public access to both sides of the river all
the way out to the fjord.

the building adds to the silhouette of the opera with a slight verticality,
choosing a posture which shows a double attention towards the fjord and the
city. the new building communicates with the opera on the same level of
importance and opens the new reading of the landscape and introduce a new
type of public space and openness in the area.
 
the two institutions have separate exhibition areas connected with a generous
vertical communication. both munch and stenersen can be expressed and redefined
inside as well as outside the building.

it is light and translucent in contrast to the opera. it is displaying the movement
of people in the facade in contrast to the people walking on the roof of the opera.
the museum talks with both sides of the bay by placing the exhibition and working
space east and communication and public flows facing west.
