The new home for the Bergen Academy of the Arts lies in a prominent location across the water from the city centre, well visible from the waterfront. The building will house many different disciplines of the academy, the workspaces for the faculty, workshops, working indoor and outdoor terraces and other serving functions.
The great opportunity to unite the to date scattered academy in one home asks for an identifying, single, but multi-faceted, structure.
