Landscape architects and basic tests of the ground

There are many tasks to be solved before SKREI can open in 2026. Among these is landscape planning – i.e. what the landscape around SKREI and now especially the Otolith should look like. What can we preserve of trees, rocks and landscape formations? Landscape architects and sample excavation are important tools.

SKREI: many parties involved

There are many parties involved in the actual planning and construction process for SKREI, and we are proud to have had such skilled partners involved in realizing SKREI. The work done by the parties is led by Museum Nord’s project manager for SKREI and selected teams.
