SPOR: Norwegian architecture 2005-2010

The exhibition presents new Norwegian architecture. SPOR: Norwegian architecture 2005-2010 shows the qualities of individual works and points out development trends of social significance.  The works selected range from the small lay-by and private housing via building complexes with infrastructure to the major town transformations of recent years. By using various types of presentation and new media, the exhibition manages to communicate a composite picture of recent years’ Norwegian architecture both at home and abroad. 

The exhibition is the seventh in a series on contemporary architecture from 1968 to today. By presenting and problematising excerpts from all of the six previous exhibitions, this year’s exhibition also embraces the growth of today’s internationally recognised Norwegian architecture.

In the Culture Quarter in Ålesund, in the space between the Jugendstil Centre and the art museum KUBE with a view of the sound and Fjellstua a wicket hay barn is being built. This is a traditional style of construction in a highly unusual setting. It is a flexible building system, making effective use of the building material.

Hay barns in Sunnmøre are made of crooked and curved wood to whatever size you need. We build a three-frame structure and cover it with a glass roof, as big, as high and elaborate as the material will allow.
