It provides operational benefits, creating good readability for the visitors, and invites versatile use with great flexibility. The new Munch Museum is pitched as a 12-story tall building that stands on a 3-story base. The base will contain different public services. The vertical structure will house exhibition areas, workshops, storage and offices. The new Munch Museum will be a counterpoint to nearby buildings, most notably to the horizontally oriented Opera House. It is designed with a glass-dominated exterior intended to make the surrounding fjord landscape part of the indoor spaces.
