The Twist: ponte e museo — Bridge and museum Una galleria, un dentro scopito come se l’acqua fosse passata e avesse scavato il tunnel. Un ponte sopra il Randselva a Jevnaker, in Norvegia. Progettata da Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), la struttura rivestita in alluminio unisce i fronti dei fiumi nord e sud nel campus del Kistefos Sculpture Park. THE TWIST, Biarke Ingels #big #tempodacqua #thetimeofwater A sinuous new gallery and bridge reaches across the Randselva River in Jevnaker, Norway. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), the aluminum-clad structure joins north and south river fronts on the campus of Kistefos Sculpture Park. 15,000 square feet of space allows visitors to explore Kistefos’s large art collection while also taking in the surrounding landscape through floor-to-ceiling windows. The Twist opened to the public on September 18th, with an exhibition featuring the work of conceptual artist Martin Creed and painter Howard Hodgkin. Kistefos Sculpture Park has ticketed admission, which includes entry to The Twist, and is open seasonally from the end of May to mid-November. (via Design Milk) BIG first won an international competition to create the bridge in 2015. The 1,000-square-meter (10,764-square-foot) aluminum-clad bridge connects the two river banks, with its twisted form allowing it to move from a lower to a higher elevation with ease. In fact, this uneven elevation between the two sides of the river created the problem that then transformed into the ingenious design known as The Twist. The bridge is just the latest art piece to appear at the Kistefos Museum and Sculpture Park. The addition of The Twist increases accessibility and will also allow for even more exhibitions within the museum (mymodernmet.com). Comments are closed.
