    • As part of Umeå University and as a neighbor to the art college and the architectural college, Bildmuseet is the hub for the production, exhibition and discussion of contemporary art in different genres. The museum is built as a tower with three open stories, with the aim of fulfilling different exhibition requirements. The Nordic design reflects the detailed treatment of daylight and our vision to create close interaction between the museum, art and nature. The facade covering's vertical slats of larch wood emphasize the building's symbolic value as a beacon of creativity in Umeå.
