Hedmark Museet - Norway

Hedmark Museum is a place to experience local architecture. With its collection of different buildings it shows a progresion of our thinking. The main part of the museum incorporates modern elements, providing a great contrast in materials, but also structural thinking. The ruins of the cathedral are covered by new glass structure, that represents the monumentality the cathedral once had.
