The small Norwegian town of Førde's new art museum, draws upon the distinctive landscape for its architectural expression: The surrounding mountains, which are visible everywhere, and Jostedalsbreen, the largest glacier on the European mainland, which lies in close proximity. The museum lies like a crystal-clear block of ice that has slid down from the surrounding mountains. The crystalline form provides an asymmetrical plan solution, with varying displacements in the facade. The facade is clad in white glass with a network of angled lines, reminiscent of the fracture lines in ice. This network also defines the irregular window apertures. In the evening these lines are illuminated, so that the museum lies like a sparkling block in the middle of the town's darkness. Inside, visitors move upwards through the museums four floors of exhibition space, and at the top a panoramic view of the mountains can be enjoyed from a roof terrace that can also function as an exhibition space or stage.
