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

The Trollstigen Project

Montag, 01. Oktober 2012

090602_15_31_36

The project enhance the experience of the Norwegian Trollstigen plateau’s location and nature. Thoughtfulness regarding features and materials underscores the site’s temper and character, and well-adapted, functional facilities augment the visitor’s experience. The architecture is to be characterised by clear and precise transitions between planned zones and the natural landscape. Through the notion of water as a dynamic element – from snow, to running and then falling water – and rock as a static element, the project creates a series of prepositional relations that describe and magnify the unique spatiality of the site.
