How to reopen an abandoned cultural institution by inserting a new cultural program? The primary research question led to the thesis Munch Philharmonic. This project suggests reopening the former Munch Museum to the public by restoring and reprogramming it and creating a new Concert Hall in Tøyen connected to the existing structure. Together they form a symbiosis where the former museum acts as front of house, home to two smaller stages for diverse use, and the new extension provides a main hall for classical music. The Oslo Philharmonic has been needing new facilities for decades. This thesis wants to make an argument for the spreading of new cultural institutions in the Oslo area. In this case an argument for Tøyen and the continued public use of the former Munch Museum.
