Congratulations to Klaus Schuwerk Architects of Naples and Berlin, with Kleihues + Schuwerk Gesellschaft von Architekten mbH, on winning the international competition to design a new museum complex for the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo, Norway.

The competition was sponsored by Statsbygg, the Norwegian Directorate of Public Construction and Property, and required entrants to design a new complex to house several museums in one facility. The new building complex will be located on the site of the old Railway Station West, Vestbanen, in Oslo.

The first place entry, Forum Artis, was designed using Vectorworks 2010 Architect software. “We think Vectorworks is the best program for doing architecture at a high level, from the first sketches to execution drawings, mainly because Vectorworks is as easy to use as a pencil and this gives time to concentrate on architecture,” said architect Klaus Schuwerk.

Of 237 entries, the top three will be considered for final development of the project.

We're honored to be the design software of choice for this award-winning firm.
