Fine Art, Music & Design

The recently completed Snøhetta designed Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design (KMD) in Bergen, Norway, is a 14 800 m2 cross-diciplinary faculty, assembling the previous scattered faculties under one roof. The building is organized along two axces, one internal for the students and one external open to the public. The axes cross each other and create a project hall, a prominent and dominant feature of the building. The zone between the public and private sphere is a multi-use, semi-climatic space running through the entire construction, and offers exciting opportunities for students, professors and visitors to connect, discover and learn from each other. The buildings entrance is connected to the large outdoor public plaza Kunstallmenningen and makes the KMD an inviting building in dialogue with the city center. Copyright: Tomasz Majewksi Photography.
