The City of Oslo is building the new Munch Museum in Bjørvika. The new museum is a landmark by the fjord close to the Opera House. Together with the new public library, this represents the largest ever investment in cultural edifices in the City of Oslo.
Oslo City Council has set ambitious environmental goals for the project with the requirement that the building is at the forefront in terms of both energy savings and reduced climate gas emissions.
The new Munch Museum is a model project for the FutureBuilt programme and is being constructed in accordance with the criteria of at least 50 % less climate gas emissions than equivalent buildings. The new Munch Museum is being built as a passive house.
