Every time we think Bjarke Ingels and the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) couldn’t possibly come up with anything else that would impress us as much as their previous projects, they do. The Twist at the Kistefos sculpture park in Norway is the perfect example of BIG’s ability to bring the seemingly impossible and fanciful to life in architectural form. The Twist is BIG’s first project in Norway that functions both as a museum and a bridge to span the Randselva river and connect the two halves of the sculpture garden. The name is both appropriate and obvious because the project twists 90 degrees near the middle to switch from a horizontal to vertical orientation depending on which one of the sides you enter in. The twist very different aspects depending where you are as one side has full-height glass windows that offer panoramic views and plenty of natural light, the other side is a darker, taller gallery with artificial lighting and they’re joined in the middle with the twisted, sculptural space that also has a sliver of roof light. Who wants to meet us in Norway to check it out?
