«Stratigrafi» one of three finalists in Stavanger

Various Architects, together with our frequent collaborators at Ramboll UK and landscape architects Østengen & Bergo have made it to the final round of the University of Stavanger Archaeological Museum competition. 34 international architecture firms initially applied for the competition. 6 teams were prequalified and asked to submit designs for the 5500m2 extension. The jury organized by Statsbygg, the Norwegian State Building Authority, has chosen 3 finalist teams who have been asked to submit additional materials before final contract negotiations.

The three finalist projects and teams are:

All finalist teams have all been asked to submit their additional materials in August, with a final decision of the winner to be made shortly therafter (hopefully). Various Architects would like to congratulate all of our fellow finalists. We are looking forward to this final phase of the competition. May the best project win.
