Marinatomta National Tourist Route
The Geiranger fjord is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List and ranks as one of the most spectacular fjord landscapes in the world. The sheer intensity of impressions can sometimes be overwhelming, for on clear days it is as if the world were never quite as transparently deep and saturated as it is in Geiranger. The project is located in the midst of this natural intensity, by the water’s edge. The intention was to create a platform—in the guise of a wooden pier—that would work as a discreet yet robust element where travelers and local people could meet and blend in an unassuming and relaxed manner. This offers something of a counterweight to the spectacular scenery, which in turn makes the experience of Geiranger even richer.
