Iceland 
Volcano 
Museum

Iceland is known for its stunning scenery, and while the country is relatively small, the landscape and stunning natural elements are larger than life. Each scene in Iceland is different, offering views of crystal blue glacier lagoons, red sand beaches, black desert landscapes and volcanoes.

A perfect example of the stark and unforgettable scenery in Iceland is the Mývatn - a spectacular region in the north of Iceland that is home to some of the country’s most awe-inspiring natural wonders, and is considered the Northern Lights Capital of Iceland. The lake region is home to Iceland's fourth largest body of water, Lake Mývatn, which is 36.5 square kilometres in size and is home to a wealth of natural wonders and wildlife.


Lake Mývatn; Mývatn - capital of the Northern Lights;


Making up part of the Diamond Circle - a popular travel route in the north of Iceland - Lake Mývatn and the surrounding region are an idyllic location to go birdwatching, fishing, relax in the natural hot springs and explore the eerily beautiful lava fortress of Dimmuborgir and of course the unforgettable Hverfjall Volcano.

The Iceland Volcano Museum competition is the third in Bee Breeders' Iceland architecture competition series and tasks participants with designing a multipurpose structure to feature local tourism attractions.

The key space of the submitted designs must be the multipurpose exhibition hall. The structure should include an information centre, café, as well as office complex. As winning proposals will be considered for construction, the jury will be looking for designs that meet these practical needs and respect the unique and sensitive context while at the same time have the potential to become an iconic tourist attraction in their own right.
