Rintala Eggertsson architecture firm have come up with an interesting venue for the SALT festival on the beach in Norway.

The piece of architecture takes its inspiration from fish racks, and comes together in a pointed form on the very top. Moreover, the structure will be used for a few different purposes, including a place to showcase artwork from various contributors, as well as a venue for musical performances. According to DesignBoom, "the building type allows for easy transport, assembly, and disassembly, and also resists wind forces common on the exposed shores." This is important because the location of the festival will move, so it's critical that the structure has these versatile qualities that look good at the same time.
