The world’s best display building

November 13, 2011

Think of a viewing center for deer in National Park, one can imagine some kind of old hut, perhaps it might be inspired by the 1920s (the golden age of National Parks) and on the surface it doesn’t sound like an excuse to create something extraordinary from an architectural perspective.

However, if it’s in Norway and it’s not just for the viewing of any deer, but culturally significant reindeers, don’t forget you’re in a place nature rates right up there, but most important if you commission one of the premier architectural firms in the world right now, Snohetta, you might come up with something like this.

The center was awarded the title of World’s Best Display Building at the recent World Architectural Awards.

Snohetta happen to be doing some amazing work right now; they were responsible for the 9/11 National Memorial and were recently commissioned to create the SFMOMA extension.
