Wave-Perspective-Figure locate the Munch and Stenersen Museum Collections at Bjørvika’s most intensive intersection, as a major part of a new open accessible urban space in the Opera Street, where the Akerselva Common and Station Common are linked together.
By placing the museums at the intersection in the Opera Street, the art and activity in the museums will be made visible and accessible in the city. From the entrances in the Opera Street, the museum will have large, airy exhibition areas - a new and modern exhibition space - with international ambitions of being the most central destination for contemporary artistic and cultural life. Wave-Perspective-Figure manufacture the entire Paulsenkaia into one interconnected urban landscape. A new urban situation developed with intimate, covered-in and outgoing urban spaces, in and along the Station Common and the Akerselva-Common. A large climatized urban space, with sunny façades and outdoor spaces with cafés, shops and galleries located between the Opera and Bispevika.
By placing the museums at the intersection in the Opera Street, the art and activity in the museums will be made visible and accessible in the city.
