Porsgrunn, Norway

The new saw-toothed Maritime Museum in the small Norwegian port town of Porsgrunn by Danish architects COBE and TRANSFORM manages to fit into its surroundings, by mirroring the shapes of the town's characteristic gabled roofs, while at the same time appearing contemporary with its abstract shape and aluminum facades.
