Kilden Performing Arts Centre, Norway
Standing directly on the waterfront in Kristiansand, the 100 meter (328 ft.) long glass facade is topped with an undulating wall in gold shimmering oak, resembling a theater curtain. Since 2012 the arts center, boasting 165,000 square meters of space, has been home to the Agder Theater, the Sør Opera and the symphony orchestra. The building was designed by Norwegian and Finnish architects.
