Kvorning to tell the tales of Norwegian national icon

bodøsjøen

Kvorning Design & Communication wins the assignment of a draft project and the main communication concept for the forthcoming Norwegian experience and science centre ‘Anna Karoline’ – Norsk jektefartsmuseum. The centre will convey the heritage of Norwegian jekt shipping and will be located by the Bodø lake in north-western Norway.

For more than 400 years the jekt was an important freight vessel for local tradesmen and its wide body and sails witness of the local boatbuilding traditions of the coast stretching from Vestlandet and northwards. The world’s only remaining Nordlandsjekt ‘Anna Karoline’ will form a central part in the dissemination of the Norwegian jekt shipping heritage.

The draft project will be realized in the beginning of 2016 and the main project will be developed as Rintala Eggertsson Arkitekter, Oslo, finalizes the blueprints for the stunning buildings.

The experience and science centre will be completed during the Spring of 2018.
