Architecture of the Astrup Fearnley Museum

The original Astrup Fearnley Museum opened its doors in 1993 and reopened in 2012 in a new building designed by Renzo Piano and Oslo architect Narud-Stokke-Wiig. The complex includes three buildings straddling a canal. The museum’s sail-inspired glass roof, cable-rigged columns, and silver-gray color scheme pay tribute to Oslo’s maritime heritage and the museum’s seafront location. Surrounding the museum, the Tjuvholmen Sculpture Park is another of Piano’s designs.
