Literally and in an extensional sense, this energy moves through the fish market's spaces. In a cadenced move, Eder Biesel Arkitekter colored the building's louvers a mustard yellow, rich burgandy and crisp white in an allusion to Bergen's Historic Bryggen. While this modern building openly engages with the Brygeen buidlings across the harbor's inlet, it also confronts the use of Miesian motif in Bergen's centrally located Grieg Hall. Along the glass facade of Grieg hall, taught steel members are drawn down in that familiar functional-ornamental fashion. The Fish market posses a quite similar rhythm and proportions in its facade, however the tempered use of color makes the cold universalism of the modern detail both, present and warm. Though the louvers are functional, they are also a loaded symbol. By painting them in their historic colors, these member are made reposed; becoming a symbol upon a symbol in a rich interplay of historicism.
