New futuristic building for Munch Museum

Oslo reaches deal on new glass-fronted museum

Ending years of political arguments over the issue, the city of Oslo says it has finally reached a deal to build a new museum housing the biggest collection of works by the iconic angst-riddled Norwegian expressionist painter Edvard Munch.
The winning project is dubbed Lambda, a futuristic crooked glass building to be located near the Oslo’s new opera house on the shores of the Oslo fjord. The current Munch Museum was built cheaply after World War II and is hard to reach for tourists in a neighbourhood beyond the city centre.
When he died in 1944, Munch bequeathed a massive collection to the city including 1,100 paintings – including two versions of “The Scream” – 3,000 drawings and 18,000 etchings.
