    This is an old music pavilion in Kristiansund, with very poor acoustic performance. No musician or band like it at all.
    Therefore, over the years, it has been used by the "loose birds" in the city as a place to gather and drink their alcohol, and it has been totally tagged down. No nice grafitti, only pure ugly tags.
    This year Kristiansund can celebrate its 275th birthday, and so the city authorities used some money to refurbish such constructions, and icons, around in the city.
    Hope it stay this way for a while.

      The 'birds' have close to leave their bottles though... :-)
      I've worked on similar stages, the only solution is to perform music that needs so much amplification that the natural acoustics are covered by the amplification.

    I do remember that pavillion from Kristiansund and I'm so happy to see that it has been restored and repainted - and pray that the taggers leave it alone!

    So pretty as long as they spraycans are kept away!

      I'm truly sorry for hijacking your city's thread but here is a couple of images of the former Sundbåten - sad to see her rusting away like this:

        - and one more if I may: if you arrive by car or other vehicle-types, you may have to cross the floating bridge BERGSØYBRUA:

          Nice new pictures in this thread, Jan-Olav.
          Yes, the sundbåten Nordsund is a sad sight. People in Kristiansund are angry towards the owner (NOT Thon Hotels) who is a private guy nobody can get hold of. Anyway...

          Yesterday, in a downpour of rain, I took my weathersealed Pentax for a walk down by the Mellemværftet Yard in Vågen and the skate park where I parked my car.
          It has been my view, and I've said it for many years, why can't Kristiansund grab the opportunity to be THE street art city of Norway? Finally someone picked up the glove, so to speak, and after the very first street art workshop held, the city gave the street art artists a wall to paint. The city painted it whit first, and it was (is) open for whoever want to get creative.
          Let's hope we see street art many more places in the city in the future.

          Nothing special going on, just a motif. Like the raindrops on the water

          This old brick building housed the yards blacksmith in the first floor (ground) and engine repair section on the second floor. As we see, Mellemværftet had three slipways.
          The boat up for maintenance in the picture belong to the yard and Nordmøre Museum

            Sad to see the remains of the old "sundbåt" but I guess we can't hold on to everything "old".

            Mellemverftet is a nice place for a walk and to take pictures - which clearly can be seen in your images.

            Actually, the year I lived in your city to undergo maritime school - I never ever went down to this place!

              We are affraid the same thing will happen to Nordsund (over by the Thon Hotel) as happened with Lyn.
              As for the Mellemværftet, I don't belive it was a place for the public to enter in those days, back when you studied here.
              Back then it was more like a scrap yard and not safe for people to walk around. Glad they cleaned the place :-)

            Remember inside abandoned Langveien school from page 102? Here's a video of stills in black and white made by my friend (with the key and permit), accompanied by the most suitable music.
            Please note the images after the ladder at the end, where he had a model placed in that tower room. Epic!!!
            Oh, and that guy on his knees there, taking picture of a radiator and the "ghost" in the doorway with camera..., yes..., it's yours truly).

              Ahaa.... now I know the possible reason as to why I never ventured down to the old shipyard at Mellemverftet! Sounds reasonable, because I'm actually surprised why this wouldn't be a great place for me to explore. Back in the days when I went to school there, Karihola and out by the shores of the Atlantic Ocean was my most loved and common place to get my walking done!

              Thanks for sharing the video in the previous post - epic work! The place certainly has a long history and the abandonment is extremely interesting.
