the new book ‘ken schluchtmann: architecture and landscape in norway’ published by hatje cantz presents the photographer’s impressions from a country ‘with the most fascinating landscapes of europe’ (ken schluchtmann). it includes photography projects of striking architecture that have been erected along the country’s national roads and are set before the backdrop of dramatic landscapes: the sohlbergplassen viewing platform by architect carl-viggo hølmebakk, a reindeer observation and information center by snøhetta at hjerkinn in dovre, and the tungeneset rest area on the island senja by code arkitektur.
alongside the book, five of the impressive photographs are available as archival C-prints—either individually or as a set—including the prize-winning image of the dizzying viewing terraces by reiulf ramstat.
