Team selected to design Danish film city

Together with AART architects, SLA, Ramboll and Kvorning Design & Communication have won the competition to extend Filmby Aarhus and transform it into a creative hub, not only for filmmakers, but for the entire city of Aarhus. The competition was launched in March by Filmby Aarhus and Aarhus Municipality in order to promote a positive development of the film city and add new qualities and experiences to the area where Aarhus harbour meets the city centre.

“The task opens up new opportunities to strengthen the film city’s status as a creative catalyst in Aarhus. By turning the film city inside out and bringing it to eye level with the surrounding city, we aim to create an eventful public venue while promoting new forms of cooperation – all with a focus on creating an integrated creative hub as an active and attractive part of the city,” says Anders Tyrrestrup, a partner at AART architects.

Kvorning wins sketch project for Norwegian coastal heritage centre

Kvorning Design & Communication wins the assignment to do a sketch project with initial blueprints which outline a new coastal heritage centre, Horisont, at Smietangen in Langesund in southern Norway. Horisont is intended to visualize the links between the residents and coast in the past, present and future.

Life on the coast

The exhibition offers visual and sensory experiences of how the coastal regions influence us as individuals. Visitors will be able to experience the unique nature up close and get fascinating insights in the coastal heritage of Southern Norway.

In shape of a 500 m2 multi-purpose building, the centre will feature a fish restaurant, exhibition and suitable activities.

Kvorning wins exhibition project at The Norwegian Petroleum Museum

The concept “The secrets of the sea” landed Kvorning Design & Communication the contract for a new exhibition about petroleum geology at The Norwegian Petroleum Museum in invited competition. The project proposal will give the Stavanger museum a new iconic element – an exhibition with a stunningly grand visual effect – which lure both youngsters and adults far down beneath the seabed.

The Norwegian Petroleum Museum’s new exhibition features science, activities and drama – pure Jules Vernes – as the working title of the winning concept ’The secrets of the sea’ suggests. In all parts of the exhibition hearts, brains and muscles of both children and grown-ups will be put to test. Zones with analogue and digital activities encourage collaborations, learning and play. This approach will surely appeal to the primary target group of the exhibition – 12 year old boys and girls – and most likely the rest of the families too.

 

Pedagogic substance and innovative wow-effect

“We see that Kvorning Design & Communication has understood the task and delivered a very resilient, well-reasoned and appealing concept. They unite wow-effect with the possibility of gaining facts and knowledge in an innovative design.” … “Our decision is based on what we think will make it possible to open a new exhibition about petroleum geology, with pedagogical substance and innovative wow-effect that will be strong enough to boost The Norwegian Petroleum Museum not only in 2017, but in many, many years to come.”

 

Whirlpool or gigantic wave

The design of the exhibition is inspired by the sea; travelling in the sea and along the seabed. A shape of a whirlpool or a gigantic wave pursues the theme inspired by tornadoes, the eyes of hurricanes, whirlpools and the human eye. The role of mankind is central: Getting the idea to extract oil from the bottom of the sea, overcoming the technical restrictions that hinder oil finding – and not least – extracting it from the sediments deep, deep down under the seabed.

 

Working closely with the museum

The new exhibition at The Norwegian Petroleum Museum will be developed in close liaison with Kvorning. By working together the museum will get a perfect starting point for a resourceful, purposeful and dynamic exhibition which incorporates a concept where analogue and digital means of communication actively blend together and turn advanced technical questions and subjects into straightforward and relevant information as well as fun and playful knowledge.

 

About The Norwegian Petroleum Museum

Darkness of the night, stars and nature at Brorfelde

Brorfelde Observatory re-lauches as a discovery centre focusing on astronomy, geology, technology and nature.

Going into the observatory is like entering a time warp. Buildings as well as the exterior remain nearly untouched and present themselves as they were when The University of Copenhagen established the facility in 1953-64.

Kvorning Design & Communication has taken part in making the beautiful buildings come alive and in the presentation of central, authentic stories of the observatory.

New exhibitions at Horsens Prison Museum

Horsens Prison Museum, Horsens Museum and Kvorning Design & Communication open yet another round of exhibitions in the authentic, rough setting of the former state prison in Horsens. ’The children of the convicts’, ’Discussion room’, ’Convict tales’ and ’Thematic narratives’ offer new dimensions to life behind bars.

Faithful towards the Prison Museum’s mission to be a vivid, influencing museum and the vision of becoming the world’s best prison museum, the exhibition encourages visitors to consider and reflect upon – and even enter a dialogue with – the four themes of the exhibition.

Kvorning’s exhibition concept combines interactive and analogue means to render the reality under lock and key. Moving images, projections, lights, sounds and scents reproduce life in jail and digital as well as analogue discussion forums keep the exhibition up to date.
