Acclaimed Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has designed a physical and conceptual bridge, ‘The Twist’—a stunningly-crafted hybrid that draws together architecture, infrastructure, and sculpture. The design project—BIG’s first in Norway—spans several traditional categories and serves multiple uses: a visually-appealing bridge, an ingenious floating museum, and an eye-catching sculpture. Located in the scenic municipality of Jevnaker, about an hour north of Oslo, ‘The Twist’ was designed to bridge the Randselva river and link the major sections of the Kistefos Sculpture Park—Scandinavia’s largest outdoor sculpture park for modern art. Despite its monumental size and dramatic appearance, the solid piece of architecture is respectful of its surroundings. Conceived as a natural extension of the sculpture park, the museum improves visitors’ accessibility by offering an almost uninterrupted walk through the landscape.
