THE ARCTIC – WHILE THE ICE IS MELTING

Nordiska Museet, Stockholm, Sweden, 2019
Under the bright light of the North Star, where meridians meet and time zones come to an end – this is where the Arctic begins. Home to four million people who have for thousands of years lived with the ice.

The Nordiska Museet's Great Hall has been given over to the life and changing conditions of the Arctic region. In The Arctic – While the Ice Is Melting, visitors encounter the history and future of the ice and the people that live in one of the regions of the world where climate change is most noticeable.

MUSEEA designed this grand exhibition occupying over 2,000 square meters. The exhibition is the result of close collaboration between the studio, Nordiska Museet and 40 researchers and experts from around the polar area.

"This is one of the most important exhibitions that we have designed", says Sofia Hedman. "Climate change is a critical issue that concerns us all. With our design, we want the visitor to have a powerful and immersive experience, but at the same time feel that we must all come together and act now."
