In 2002 a team consisting of sculptor Kristian Blystad, artist Kalle Grude and I got the commission to create the large roof of the new National Opera and Ballet in Oslo as a large piece of public art.
1. Prize in an open competition.
The 20 000m2 marble roof consists of about 30 000 different and individually sculpted stone pieces. Each piece is part of a large composition expanding the experience of the different surfaces and the shifting light and shadow conditions of days and nights throughout the year.
The opera opened in 2008.
