Winding Concrete Cultural Center in Norway

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 08, 2013
  We love this proposal for a new cultural center in Norway by the portuguese engineering and design firm Cerejeira Fontes Architects. Interpreting a lineal series of spaces, the overlapping, winding concrete form also has a cantilevering tail and forms an outdoor gathering space in its center. The roof emerges from a rock formation and doubles as seating for events and an extruded form frames views of the ocean.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 23, 2013
From ROM for Art + Architecture in Oslo, Norway, on their new, incredible light installation: Submergence is a highly immersive, Mixed Reality experience that challenges perceptions of space and presence.

Born in 1980 in Oslo, Norway, the artist and illustrator Sail currently  lives and works on the top of a hill near the sea and tends to keep to himself. His dramatic, gestural illustrations are full of heavy contrasted emotion and some of his clients include Sprint, Random House and Soft Skull Press. Beautiful work.

The Works of Henrik Uldalen

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 07, 2012
Oslo, Norway-based Henrick Uldalen is a young up-and-coming self-taught painter. His atmosphere and subject matter is often depicted as being in a limbo or dream-like state. Despite his realistic approach, photographic accuracy is not what he seeks to achieve.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 05, 2012
Norwegians just do it better? The Troll Wall is the tallest vertical rock face in Europe, about 3,600 ft from its base to the summit of its highest point. And now, thanks to the wonderful work of Reiulf Ramstad Architects, there is a fantastic visitor's center for which to visit before you base jump, or whatever you do at steep cliffs.
