Located on Oslo’s waterfront, at MUNCH the visitors will discover the broad oeuvre of Edvard Munch. Respectfully bowing towards the city centre, with unparalleled views onto the fjord and offering a wide-ranging program of cultural events and experiences for all visitors, the museum will be the new cultural highlight of the Norwegian capital. Being at the forefront of architectural design and building innovation, MUNCH already stands out as a showcase for sustainable construction.
Statement of the jury
The slight incline gives the building its own unique identity, which is enhanced even more by the striking texture of the façade. A remarkable, iconic design that looks wonderfully light and arouses curiosity.
