Project description

Architects: NTNU students in collaboration with Brendeland & Kristoffersen Arkitekter

The Megaphone is an 18 meter long cut cone made of 3mm steel sheets, mounted on eight columns. The exterior is painted white, while the interior is painted with high gloss black, which reflect light an color as well as sound. Acoustically, the Megaphone with its 6-meter maximum diameter catches and transmits sounds from the environment, as well as working as an enormous, well, megaphone.

It was later moved to Ladehammeren.

The project was published in Arkitektur N. Read the article HERE.
