Event type
Astrup Fearnley Museet has moved from the established Kvadraturen district to the new, urban outermost district located on the fjord, Tjuvholmen. The museum will be a significant piece to the new district. Completed in 2013, Tjuvholmen will also be home to hotels, businesses, apartments and a engaging sculpture park surrounding the museum. Astrup Fearnley Museet with its signature building, already acts as a cultural attraction in a comprehensively developed and eye-catching neighborhood. To what extent will the museum contribute in characterizing life in Tjuvholmen and how will the district function as a whole for the local and visiting public?


We have invited an amalgamated panel to discuss the plan behind and realization of Tjuvholmen as a district.

The panel:
Gunnar Bøyum – admin. dir. to Tjuvholmen KS
