|Discussion||Hamar Bispegaard Museum Commentary
“Architecturally, the main objective was to create a museum form to preserve what remains of Hamar Bispegard and Storhamarlaven and make it possible for the digging to be an important feature, like the objects on exhibition. The answer is the "suspended museum" allowing the public to experience history not as book-learning, but brought alive by archeology.”
— Dag Rognlien, ed. Treprisen, Thirteen Norwegian Prize-Winning Architects. Norway: Arkitektnytt, 1988. p118.
The Creator's Words
“In architectonic terms, we are the eternal passers-by. We walk in and out of buildings and towns, impressed by edifices and squares, but ourselves making no impression. But suddenly, at the end of the 1960s, confronted with nothing but an old barn and a few medieval ruins, one has to reconsider. How to make such a place yields its secrets, how to create a visible record of 1000 years of history.”
— Sverre Fehn. “Hedmarksmuseet På Domkirkeodden, Hamar”, Byggekunst, The Norwegian Review of Architecture, Feb 1992. p139.
