Wingårdhs wins Statoil competition in Norway, beats Snøhetta, OMA and Norman Foster

05 April of 2014 by

“E = mc²” by Swedish firm Wingårdhs was the winning solution in an invited competition to redesign the Forus West building of major energy company Statoil in Sandnes, Norway.

Statoil will now further develop its plans for the new building based on Wingårdhs’ proposal and clarify significant regulation issues before further progress is done.From 48 applications worldwide, the invited teams consisted mostly of Norwegian names and a few famous ones: Snøhetta (NO); Foster + Partners (UK) with Space Group (NO); and Helen & Hard (NO) with SAHAA (NO). OMA (NL) was also invited but withdrew shortly before the competition deadline, much to the jury’s disappointment.Here’s a glimpse of Wingårdhs’ proposal:See the jury’s evaluation and other details on Bustler.
