Lillehammer Art Museum and Cinema
In December 2016, architectural practice Snøhetta completed their extension of the Lillehammer Art Museum and Cinema in Norway.
The striking extension is formed by a cantilevered cube covered in a layer of crinkled and polished stainless steel. It was designed by the late Norwegian artist Bard Breivik in response to the idea of art hovering above a transparent base.
The new extension adjoins a previous extension created by Snøhetta in the 1990s and provides further gallery space as well as two new cinema theatres.
