New protective structures, Hedmark museum
Hedmark museum is built over the remains of a mediaeval archbishop’s palace. The palace courtyard is still one of the main elements of the design, and two new large ruins were excavated during the 1980’s. The new protecting pavilions make these a part of the route through the museum.

The North ruin, a former watchtower, is spanned by a row of 18 metre long timber beams that filter natural light down to the old walls.
The West ruin covers a former storage vault, and the new concrete structure mimics the vault below, allowing access across a new ramp to the basement floor of the adjacent administration building.
