10 Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art in Oslo, Norway

This wedged-shaped building is a bold hint of what is inside: the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art. The dramatic structure was designed by Renzo Piano and opened in the Tjuvholmen area of Oslo in 2012. The musset was founded in 1993 by two philanthropic organizations. The benefactor for the Astrup Foundation was Hans Rasmus Astrup. He is a billionaire and major art collector. The Thomas Fearnley Foundation was established by a successful shipping family. The museum exhibits artwork from the 1960s through to contemporary artists.
