Grand opening of Porsgrunn Maritime Museum

Today is the grand opening of the new Maritime Museum and Exploratorium in the Norwegian town Porsgrunn. The 2,000 m² museum is composed of eleven smaller square volumes, each with a different roof slant. The building's ruptured shape into smaller building volumes and the expressive differentated roof profile are references to the area's historic small wooden buildings.
