The FRAM Museum will take on a new extension dedicated to polar exploration and environmental education. Designed by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter, the winning proposal of the invited architectural competition, Framtid, or Future is centered on the idea that “architecture exemplifies how we care for our environment”. Located on Oslo’s museum island, Bygdøy, with multiple cultural and maritime neighboring spaces, as well as parks and gardens, the FRAM Museum’s newest building will generate gathering places, exhibition spaces, a café and an auditorium to the current installations, “which display ships and artifacts from early polar expeditions”. A symbol of Norway's significant participation in polar exploration, the museum inspires guests to “seek knowledge on environmental education in regards to current climate change and sustainable solutions”.
