Trondheim Kongress Hotel

The site has been extruded to fit the programmatic purposes and then lifted at the corners,

directions out to the Fjord and the surrounding city.
The congress center is cut down in the ground in a landscape plane forum with multipurpose and
flexible capabilities accommodating large groups and gatherings.
Hovering above, a vibrant indoor/outdoor social space is created at the crux of the connection
between private hotel rooms and the public levels of the reception program.
A white band holds everything together, from the peaks to the solid ground, shown as a pierced

a visit to the aquarium, making it a natural extension to the existing and future public planning of
