Design team chosen for Greenland gallery

A team comprising Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), TNT Nuuk, Ramboll Nuuk and Arkitekti has been chosen to design a new national gallery in Greenland.

BIG's concept for the 3,000sq m (32,292sq ft) Greenland National Gallery of Art was selected ahead of five rival entries, following a design competition. Located on a slope overlooking a fjord, the attraction will feature a combination of historical and contemporary artworks under one roof.

Greenland National Gallery of Art will feature a circular design to enable exhibitions to be divided up into various sizes and shapes. Visitors will access the exhibition through a lobby offering a 180 degree panoramic view of the fjord and sculpture garden, with the building designed to appear as a piece of land-art.

BIG partner and project leader Andreas Klok Pedersen said: "The building will with its simplistic coarseness and harmony with the landscape become a symbol of the current independent Greenlandic artistic and architectural expression." Bjarke Ingels said: "We propose a national gallery which is both physically and visually in harmony with the dramatic nature, just like life in Greenland is a symbiosis of the nature."

Ramboll director Stephen Melville added: "While the Greenland National Gallery architectural form suggests simplicity there are many hidden challenges in the structural engineering of the building. "These have to do with to do with the integrated use of materials and the constraints posed by the site. Delivering buildability is a key driver for the engineering design."
