Gaia Vesterålen exhibited in Shanghai

Gaia Vesterålen is exhibited in Shanghai.

Design Shanghai is one of the world’s most prestigious international design events and Asia’s premier design event. Gaia Vesterålen is exhibited in the Norwegian pavilion, as one of 6 projects chosen to display architectural approach.

Far up in the northern parts of Norway, we have looked to the local fishing industry, using its discarded containers to develop a project of a fully circular landmark building.

The ambition is to build a museum in Sortland seafront with a recycling level of 95 percent, the highest ever realized in a major construction process.

The project has received EU-funding through Circ-Boost and Horizon Europe to research the reuse of concrete and is developed as a collaboration between Lundhagem architects, the local community, Gaia Vesterålen, Museum Nord, the Artic university of Norway and Reno Vest recycling plant.
