Today we celebrate the ground breaking for The Danish Rock Museum in Roskilde. The new building is located between two old industrial halls that previously housed a concrete factory. It is characterized by its twenty meter cantilever over the main entrance and an outer façade of anodized gold aluminium pyramids. With a surface of 3.500 m2 over 5 floors the building features a large exhibition hall, flexible auditorium, café, museum shop, administration offices and a lobby. 

The Danish Rock Museum will open its doors in 2015.

Nydalen+ is one of the largest masterplans for Oslo in modern times. The new masterplan is created by COBE and MAD (no) in close collaboration with Avantor (no), who owns and manages the area. With its central location in Oslo at the Aker-river, right where the Oslo Metro crosses, Nydalen is a prime target for Oslo's next big urban development project. The project creates a broader urban context where the Aker-river and the metro stations of Nydalen and Storo are linked together, revealing the '+' shape. This gives way for the densifying of approx. 500,000 m2 and at the same time allows for a doubling of housing in the area from 3,000 to 6,000.

 

The project is presented at the conference Open Urban Arena in Oslo from the 18th to 19th of June.
