Danish architect must draw hvalcenter to 250 million

Danish Dorthe Mandrup must draw hvalcenter 300 kilometres north of the arctic circle.

It will be the Danish designer Dorthe Mandrup, being the architect behind a hvalcenter on the island of Andenes in northern Norway, 300 km north of the arctic circle.

It writes the Norwegian erhvervsmedie E24 and Danish Berlingske.

the Project was first launched in may 2018, according to Norwegian NRK. At that time it was planned that it should be finished in 2020 and cost a little over 150 million Danish kroner.

According to the E24 and Berlingske is the project for a price of up to 260 million dollars, and it will be finished in 2022.

Although there is a group of owners ready behind the project, says the daily leader Børre Berglund to E24, that they have not yet agreed on how investments are to be distributed between them.

Hvalcenteret has attracted attention from, among others, rejsemediet Lonely Planet. The island of Andenes is already known for whale watching.

Originally it was estimated that the hvalcenteret would lure the 70,000 annual visitors to. It is not apparent whether the estimate has changed.

the Idea is that the centre, which will be named "The Whale", must be a cross between a museum and a tourist attraction. Andenes has due to its geographical position a series of very special outdoor experiences.

You can experience the midnight sun for two months from may to July. At the same time, have polar nights where the sun in the course of a whole day, never stand up.
