Tromsø, a city in northern Norway, may be a major cultural hub above the Arctic Circle . It’s famed as a viewing point for colourful aurora borealis that sometime illuminate the nighttime sky. The city’s historic centre, on the island of Tromsø, is distinguished by its centuries-old wooden houses. The 1965 Arctic Cathedral, with its distinctive peaked roof and soaring stained-glass windows, dominates the skyline.
The compact city center has the most important concentration of historic wooden houses north of Trondheim, and that they co-exist with modern architecture. the homes go back 1789 to 1904, when building wooden houses were banned within the city center , as in several other Norwegian cities. The oldest house in Tromsø is Skansen, built-in 1789 on the remains of a 13th-century turf rampart.
The Polar Museum, Polarmuseet, situated during a wharf house from 1837, presents Tromsø’s past as a centre for Arctic hunting and start line for Arctic expeditions.
Being a major cultural and historical hub for Norway, Tromso has a dire requirement for a global-level cultural centre that brings tourists to Tromso or Norway at large – and provides them with the original ‘Arctic Experience’ (without having to visit the North Pole).
The challenge is to design a hybrid museum / cultural and historical centre within Tromso – which attracts enthusiasts of the Arctic experience from around the world.
Note: The heritage and attraction of the Polar Museum must not be hampered by the development/design of the museum of Arctic Confluence.
