Project description by General Architecture (GA):
The competition brief was to design a covered market at the old harbour in the center of Bergen. The location is close to Bryggen, which is listed as an UNESCO world heritage. GA proposed a timber structure consisting of a system of three dimensional vaults. The base of each vault formed a storage space for the merchants thus creating an open uninteerupted space.
