GRAFT’s proposal for the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo finds its place in a unique historic and spatial context; integrated into an outdoor museum complex in the center of the Bygdøy peninsula. The long and vivid history of the Viking Museum and its presented findings unfold in a continuous motion within and around the new landscape that houses the extension. The draft aims to protect the residents’ and visitors’ view of the area in the north while sensitively augmenting the landscape features on the given site.

Isolated within a seemingly endless stretch of flat, idyllic countryside, a small but dense forest emerges into view. Occupying 4500 square metres, the ancient copse has been preserved and nurtured in its rural setting. Nestled within this unique environment the project acts as small museum. It consists of a market selling locally farmed produce and goods, a restaurant serving dishes using only locally grown ingredients (based on the Chisan-Chisho concept of local production for local consumption), and an event space hosting exhibitions and concerts for the community.

The project is a proposal for a new branch of NCCA Museum in Moscow.
The project proposes a flexible matrix of the linear block, a strategy derived from the great modern Russian architecture. Every single block opens the buildings to the world axes and it is modular with different dimensions and openings according to the program, solar exposition, energy consumption, and sustainability. At the centre of the triangular site, the main bar is an atrium space, which connects the existing buildings, the NCCA with the future development of the area.
