Greenland’s Upcoming National Gallery

The shape of the exterior reminds me a little of the Beijing birds nest….

The Danish BIG architectural group won a competition recently for the design of Greenland’s new national gallery. The structure is to represent Greenland’s rugged but beautiful terrain, culture and people.  Construction will begin shortly. What do you guys and girls think? Pretty awesome!

One thought on “Greenland’s Upcoming National Gallery

  1. Interesting. Cool design. Yep, it sure looks like the Birds Nest. But, who pays for this? I’ve read there are just 57,000 residents of Greenland earning around $22,240 per capita. How will such an impoverished group of people come up with the funds for the project? Or, are the Danes generous benefactors? And, would this be the highest priority for Greenlanders or could they maybe perhaps use the funds for something more important?
