Svalbard Science Centre

This is the extension of an existing building at the University of Svalbard, located in Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen Island, Svalbard, Norway. It will house the Museum of Svalbard, the Polar Science Center, and administrative offices of the authorities of the island, a library and cultural center. Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL design the science center inspired by the stars, with five arms emerging from a central core, responding to a fully complete study of the climate in its place. The building is integrated into the landscape, not just for aesthetic but it was required to measure as accurately as possible also. The skin covered with copper reference to the landscape, adapting to the wind and snow movement. The roof panels and walls show the tradition and culture of Svalbard. Roof panels refer to mine as the traditional occupation of Svalbard and the walls inclination highlights the effect of cave. Steel and wood was used in the main building to facilitate the adaptation and the work of structural loads on the ground and avoid thermal bridges. It’s creating an atmosphere inside the building, also a protection from the cold and darkness on the sunny summer and frozen winter.
