Update: Kristiansund Opera and Culture Center / C. F. Møller Architects

This summer, C.F. Møller Architects informed us of their shared first prize for a competition to design a new Opera and Culture Center in Norway. The firm just shared with us that the jury has recently selected C. F. Møller Architects as the final winner (Norwegian firm Space Group in collaboration with the London firm Brisac Gonzales was the other first place contestant). As we’ve previously featured, the new center will create a vibrate cultural community for opera, dance, plus educational and mixed programs. The winning proposal, entitled Kulturkvartalet, forms an entire cultural district where the “light and lively facades create an ever-changing play of light and shadow.” Set to be inaugurated in 2014, the center will connect the various activities with a network of pedestrian streets, squares, and a nearby park. The project will abide by the environmental standard BREEAM.
