Bjarke Ingels' twisting museum bridge in Norway readies for September opening
POSTED 05 Jun 2019 . BY Andrew Manns
With the inhabited bridge, we stumbled upon our first experiment in social infrastructure
– Bjarke Ingels
The Bjarke Ingels-designed "Twist" in Hønefoss, Norway, is set to make its debut on 18 September.

Situated in the Kistefos Museum's 270,000 sq m sculpture park, the new structure, which has been described as an “art museum, sculpture, path in the landscape, and bridge", spans across the Randselva river.

Once complete, the Twist will house three galleries dedicated to contemporary art.

AKTII provided infrastructure oversight and support for the project, while DIFK served as the engineer of record.

Bladt Industries was responsible for building the Twist, which is comprised of 380 tonnes of steel.

Christen Sveaas and Kistefos AS served as the scheme’s primary financial backers.

Founded in 1995, the Kistefos Museum occupies the former site of an important 19th-century paper mill and boasts a wide-ranging collection of pieces by a variety of artists, including Anish Kapoor, Olafur Eliasson, and Fernando Botero.

Ingels has been attached to the institution's renovation efforts since 2015.

Construction is expected to conclude on 1 July.
