But that's not all, thanks to the stunning shapes itself footbridge Twist is a work of art and is already recognized as the most ambitious sculpture park area.
The Norwegian Kistefos Sculpture Park recently opened a unique bridge-museum, which has created a Danish architectural studio Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG).
The complex terrain and different height Randselva shores of the river are the reason that the bridge has turned out such an unusual design. And its location led architects to smash his head on the creation of an impressive design that he has taken a worthy place among the existing sculptures.
Due to aluminum, which is made from the shell of the closed bridge and a special arrangement of decorative elements, as well as through the large windows on the south side of the bridge is amplified optical illusion design of rotation, which falls exactly on the middle of the crossing. The inner space of the bridge that was called Twist arranged so that it squares (about 1 thousand. Sq. M.) Can be arranged not only permanent composition, but also the huge exhibit space.
This functionality is unique bridge-museum was chosen not without reason, because the park itself, in which it is located, is an excellent place of cultural rest of the townspeople and visitors, and is a "natural extension of the already established complex." As promised the organizers of additional exhibition space in the near future there will be a global exposure.
Recall this extraordinary bridge Museum is the latest masterpiece housed in Kistefosa sculpture park, which was founded in 1996 by a Norwegian businessman and a fairly well-known collector Christen Sveaasom on the former timber company owned by his family.

In recent years, the bridge builders have perfected their skills so that manage to erect the crossing incredible shapes with fantastic functionality. Some projects are so striking that they have become a real attraction, and it does not matter, it will be incredible lengths sea bridge or an ordinary foot hovering over the precipice.
