A threshold to the viking world
TERROIR was shortlisted to the final round of the competition for a new Experience and Knowledge Centre at the Viking fort of Trelleborg, after an international call for proposals. The project was in collaboration with Erik Møller Architects, Henrik Jørgensen Landscape, Redia + Oddfischlein and Aksel V Jensen. The building could be located anywhere on the large site, and we chose an area at the furthest extent of the site that was concealed in the landscape but from which views to the Trelleborg Fort could be enjoyed.
Movement to and through the building formed a dialogue with the fort itself, seen from different vantage points. An excellent exhibition design by Oddfischlein worked with the architectural approach to take visitors back and forth through time as they learnt about the site and its history.
