INABA has been selected to design a permanent artwork for a new concert hall in Stavanger, Norway from a field of six invited international teams.

Project Description from the Architects:

The 8m diameter and 13m tall cylindrical structure will hang from the top of the hall’s five-story high lobby and be visible from the adjacent public plaza, surrounding neighborhoods, and city harbor. Clad with translucent exterior panels, Skylight will emit artificial light digitally composed to act as a programming beacon for the center’s events. It will respond to the region’s extreme atmospheric conditions by creating a range of luminous effects including extended twilights in winter and surreal auroras in summer. The lighting is also designed to change in hue and intensity in sync with performances, forming distinct patterns during arrival, theater calls, intermission, and closing.
