Allford Hall Monaghan Morris has been named on the shortlist in the competition for a new £80 million university building in Bergen, Norway
Working in collaboration with London and Oslo based Haptic Architects, this year’s Stirling Prize winner is competing against four other teams to design The Energy and Technology (EnTek) research facility.
When completed the new 18,000m² laboratory and research building will play a major part in the university’s ambition ‘to be the leading centre for energy research in Norway’.
Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) has previously worked with Haptic Architects on its competition submission for the £160 million convention centre in Brunstad, Norway (see AJ 22.06.11).
