Museenes Oscar til The Twist

March 26, 2020

The Twist vant internasjonal kulturpris for Beste arkitektur under Leading Culture Destinations Award 2020 i Berlin den 4. Mars.

LCD Awards har som mål å synliggjøre verdens flotteste kulturelle destinasjoner, og anerkjenne deres eksepsjonelle bidrag til kulturlivet. The Twist var nominert sammen med Nasjonalmuseet i Qatar Doha (Jean Nouvel) og V&A Dundee (Kengo Kuma) i Dundee, Skotland. The Twist er tegnet av de danske arkitektene i BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group og åpnet September 2019.

We are extremely honoured to have won the award for Museum of the Year in 2020. The Twist, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, at Kistefos Museum was a brave concept in both design and construction. It is a gallery, a bridge and a sculpture, and we are delighted by the recognition this architecturally iconic building is now receiving. The opening of The Twist has helped put Kistefos on the map and increased our visibility globally. We are very much looking forward to presenting exhibitions and artists of international importance and creating memorable visitor experiences in the years to come
