We won THIRD prize for MUSEUM OF DESIGN competition organized by SWITCH competitions.
Mobiuseum : Oslo’s first Mobius Museum of Design floating in space
Our proposal is conceived as a continuous never ending infinite Mobius loop, representing the concept of time where the visitor gets a feeling of floating in space.
The Mobius form has been placed strategically on the center of the site in such a way that it produces a minimal footprint of the building. The building blends perfectly into the contoured topography of the site and extends till the waterfront.
This topology provides a panoramic view of the Bygdy island and creates an experience of being in proximity with nature, preserving the natural beauty and the fauna and flora of the island. Together, the museum structure, urban forest and connecting waterfront plazas form an ensemble, a new landmark and let you immerse into the futuristic world of BygdÃ¸y island.
