Snøhetta Viewpoint

Oslo-based architecture firm Snøhetta has created an observation pavilion for the Wild Reindeer Foundation, located in Dovrefjell, Norway. In this time-lapse film by Alejandro Villanueva, the building and the surrounding landscape are revealed in astonishing detail.

According to the architects, the building design is based on a contrast between ideas – a rigid outer shell and a soft, organic inner core. The wooden core is shaped like rock or ice that has been eroded by natural forces like wind and running water, and is placed within a rectangular frame of raw steel and glass.
