CORE CRUSH: THE TWIST
Is it a bridge? Is it a sculpture? We don’t care. We’re just totally crushing over this spectacular design for the Kistefos Museum aptly named The Twist. Located just north of Oslo the museum creates a new connection between two forested banks over the Randselva river and completes the journey through the vast Kistefos Sculpture Park.
“A simple twist in the building’s volume allows the bridge to lift from the lower, forested riverbank in the south up to the hillside area in the north. As a continuous path in the landscape, both sides of the building serve as the main entrance. From the south entry, visitors cross a 16m aluminum-clad steel bridge to reach the double-height space with a clear view to the north end, similarly linked with a 9 meter pedestrian bridge” explains the architect Bjarke Ingels of BIG Design.
