Munch: 2023 Works of Wonder

The Oslo, Norway building was conceived by Estudio Herreros


Rising 13 stories above the radically transformed Bjørvika waterfront, this enigmatic museum— conceived by Estudio Herreros to Passive House standards—pays loving tribute to Norway’s most famous painter, Edvard Munch, bringing together some 42,300 personal objects, including 26,000 of his own works (among them The Scream). Perforated recycled-aluminum cladding shields the interiors from the finicky Nordic sun.
