The national rock and pop museum of Norway, Rockheim, built for the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Culture, has been unveiled.
Designed by Norwegian design practice Pir II and Canada-based Parallel World Labs, the state-of-the-art interactive museum building features a cantilevered box extension built on the roof.
The six-floor museum is also decorated with Norwegian LP covers painted on to a glass exterior and illuminated from the back by 14,000 LEDs.
Parallel World Labs CEO Stacey Spiegel said the upper levels of the museum offered dozens of state-of-the-art installations and experiences, guiding the visitor through the last six decades of the country’s pop and rock culture.
Other features of the museum include a tribute hall, decade-based immersive rooms, an artefact wall, a hands-on mixing studio and performance stage, concert hall and MediaTek lounge, according to worldinteriordesignnetwork.com.
