TALLERKEN

Seeking to accentuate the most beautiful elements of the surrounding landscape: the forests and the water, while achieving minimum intrusion and maximum accordance with the topography and the magic of the place, a unique space is generated. A deep watery plate translucent and reflective is gently placed on the natural upper plateau of the topography, capturing and bringing in the changing landscape to feel embraced.

The magnitude of the plate consists of a horizontal bold element that, instead of imposing itself on the site, captures its liquid and green atmosphere and generates an aqueous haven of silence and serenity, sheltered from the city, yet open to the world. All spaces are designed as a refuge inside the landscape, a hidden world to be discovered, surrounded by lush vegetation and a liquid atmosphere of lights, colours, and reflections.

Two key programmatic strategies to activate the city are used, offering a destination to go and go again: a) the Dome: the immensity of this space allows to accommodate every kind of design exhibition and future museum typology, b) the Hub: flexible spaces of encounter and creativity that promote dialogue and sociability.

Key words: flexible, encounter, aqueous, haven, reflection

FJORDISM / Fjord Design Museum of Oslo
Discovering design through the journey of soil, culture and nature.

Simplicity

Topography

Biomimicry

Wandering

Openness

A landmark visible from afar, the museum is settled in an iconic piece that follows the contours of the topography, opening out towards the fjord; approaching, the visitor discovers a more intimate scale, close to the archetypal Norwegian habitat.

Free access to the park and large bay windows give a view of the interior of the building and play the attractive and stimulating role of a destination and meeting place for all audiences.

The diversity of interior volumes, modular and scalable, opens the museum to all exhibition opportunities, all sizes of objects, all types of events (training, conference, workshop, etc.).

Crossing volumes that are very open to the landscape or on the contrary in a black box, the inside pathway offers the conditions for a sensory experience highlighting the sound, olfactory or light design.

The program is enriched with furnished accommodation allowing an intimate experience of design during a stay.

Möbiuseum

The metallisk hvit Möbius, meaning “metallic white” in Norwegian, resonates with the glowing white snow on top of the mountains and lake. Our proposal is conceived as a continuous never ending infinite Möbius loop, representing the concept of time where the visitor gets a feeling of “floating” in space. 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 Bygdøy island.

Museum of Design Oslo Contest by Switch

“Evolution of mankind is a result of his ability to design.”

The field of Design is defined by the areas where design process can be applied: architecture, urban space, clothing, furniture, consumer products, printed materials, digital interfaces, social structures, websites etc. But design encompasses much more than form and function. Design is not a being, but an event, it is not a thing but an impact.

Design is born out of our desire to elevate our experiences, both practically and emotionally. Design encourages us to explore and experiment, and thus transcend into an improved world.  Human ability to use design as an expressive system and a process to develop solutions is evident all the way from primitive times. Despite its diversity w.r.t to different areas of intervention, design is omnipresent and invisible.

Museum of Design Oslo Competition by Switch

Whether we’re aware of it or not, design surrounds us, and can be found in the tiniest of places and forms. It’s three-pronged impact: experiential, aesthetic and social has created various styles and movements throughout history which has had a profound impact on the growth of men and society in general.

The aim of this competition is to create an iconic ‘Museum of Design’ in Oslo that would celebrate the domain of design and become a fitting tribute to the field as a whole. Design has been largely neglected as a museological domain worldwide, apart from some certain sections in major art museums dedicated to individual designers. Entering into a new decade, the ‘Museum of Design’ must generate awareness and reflect upon the journey of design through time. The Museum of Design must become an archive and a hub for development of future design movements and innovations.

Museum of Design should encompass all the major design areas under a single envelope and make a powerful statement. The Museum of Design should narrate the process and effort behind design in a powerful manner so that people can observe and appreciate its profound impact. The museum should create a timeline w.r.t specific design fields where people can experience its impact on society. The spatial and architectural manifestation of the journey/story should be an immersive experience for people so that they can absorb the information easily.

Design Museum must be a place where people who love design can meet. It should become an architectural icon for the city of Oslo where people can converge and talk about design. The museum should also insert learning centers and convention areas for biennale etc. apart from its usual archival programs so that it can give back to the people of the city
