The Astrup Fearnley Museet has been constructed in Oslo on behalf of the Renzo Building Workshop and the Narud-Stokke-Wiig team. The towering structure sits atop a canal, giving off the illusion of its floating above the waters.

This massive 7000 square meter building will act as host to contemporary installations, a gift shop and a small cafe, the bare necessities of any current gallery. The launch will begin by celebrating the 'To Be With Art Is All We Ask' event, showcasing awe-inspiring pieces from the Astrup Fearnley Collection.

Norway streets flow into the Fjord harbors, leading the city's creative crowds to the Astrup Fearnley Museet launch. The extensive bridges and well manicured lawns will also attract an abundance of tourists. Stats for Floating Waterfront Museums Trending: Older & Mild
