Allmannajuvet Zinc Museum by Peter Zumthor

During his trip to Norway this summer, Ken Schluchtmann stopped at Allmannajuvet Zinc Museum in Sauda.

The museum is one of the 10 largest attractions along the National Tourist Routes and was commissioned to Swiss architect Peter Zumthor by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration in 2002. It opened last year and aims to bring the history of the briefly booming yet now abandoned Norwegian Allmannajuvet zinc mine to a broader public.

The architecture consists in a combination of three sleek, minimal volumes and industrial aesthetics. Ken Schluchtmann is the first photographer who pictures not only the architecture but shares with us also its natural context for a better comprehension of Zumthor’s project
