Leif Grung exhibition

Presents an exhibition called Leif Grung – the man and his work

The exhibition is a journey into the process, the history and the human behind the leading figure within functionalism in Bergen and the success and the drama that led to his death in 1945. The exhibition gives an insight into the Bergen School with the conflicts that went with it both over the mountains to eastern Norway and in Bergen itself.

The Festival of Architecture will take place in an entirely new city district in Oslo called Vulkan.  This former industrial area has recently undergone a total transformation and at the opening of the festival emerge as a completely unique centre of culture consisting of the House of Dance, Vulkan Stage, the Westerdal School of Communication and the Bellona Building. Close by are several other institutions such as AHO (the Oslo School of Architecture and Design), KHIO (The Oslo National Academy of the Arts) and DogA (Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture).

Vulkan was constructed with the very latest within sustainable solutions. The festival venue itself is a former factory building.  Visitors can expect a spectacular spatial experience.  Accommodation may be obtained at the two new Vulkan hotels.  Grünerløkka right across the river offers Oslo’s liveliest nightlife. LPO were the principal architects for the Vulkan development after winning the competition held in 2004. As well as thus project LPO is responsible for the plans for the Bellona Building, the House of Dance, the new bridge workshop (Oxygeno) and the old bridge workshop (the festival arena)
