20 Photos Of Norway’s Fairy Tale Architecture


via 20 Photos Of Norway’s Fairy Tale Architecture.

Norway started out as a kingdom in 872 and has existed ever since. It has also saved quite a bit of its traditional architecture. Traditional Norwegian architecture makes it look like a land out of a fairytale. Stave churches – so named because of the Norse words for their load-bearing poles – were extremely popular back in the 12th century, and their unique shape matched with all-wooden construction make is simply spectacular.

Norvegian vernacular (as in, built to local requirements and using local materials) architecture is wonderful. Moss and even trees grow on the roofs of wooden or stone buildings, making Norway a sort of Norse Shire. Have a look, and plan your next holiday accordingly!

German architect Werner Düttmann (1921-1983), a prominent postwar modernist, designed the Brutalist St. Agnes Church in 1967 as the centerpiece of a social housing community of the Kreuzberg area of Berlin, which had been leveled in World War II. After years of neglect and threats of demolition, the church has made a comeback, reopening this May as König Galerie following a three-year restoration.
