Allmannajuvet in Sauda and the abandoned zinc mines from the late 1800s.  Design a tourist route attraction for the purpose of welcoming visitors and bringing the old mining history of Sauda back to life. The installation consists of a museum building, a café building, toilet and parking facilities, paths and stairs. The exterior support system consists of creosote impregnated laminated wood. The exterior walls of the building consist of 18 mm plywood sheets and jute burlap, coated with a German acrylic material (PMMA). The interior walls have been painted in a dark colour to resemble a gallery.
