What is it like to live in one of the windiest regions of Scandinavia? Take a trip to the Guri Center to find out.
The exhibition “Encounters with the wind” at the Guri Center takes the visitor on a journey back in time. The goal was to create an experience of coastal culture, strength and pride, and the stories, design and materials in the exhibition are all inspired by the wind.
The project was executed in cooperation with Skirnir AS, and Expologys role was to bring the exhibition from the idea and concept stage to an up-and-running exhibition. The Guri Center's location, several ferry trips away from mainland and far from the nearest store, brought many challenges in the project. As well as challenging materials, like parts of real houses and antique objects.
Client: Smøla Municipality has some of the strongest winds in Scandinavia and the Guri Center is part of a national center for wind power.
