Noten Cultural Center | WE architecture

• April 6, 2011

Notodden Townhall has decided to join several cultural functions such as a cafe, a museum, and a library under one roof; this allows the possibility of creating a building where people of different ages and interests can meet and interact.

As a tribute to the history of the site, the roof of the building is laid out as an amphitheatre which spirals around the old shipping dock, and the Dock itself houses a floating stage. Much like in a greek theatre, the surrounding landscape becomes the scenography.
