Far Out on the Edge of the Earth

leave a comment »

The new Petter Dass Museum in Alstahaug, Norway slices through dense rock and cantilevers out over the water.  Snøhetta built the museum with inspiration from Dass, one of the best writers and poets in Norway at the time (circa 1700). Architectural Record documents the curving, cutting building and how it seems to reflect Dass’ famous work, “Nordlands Trompet (The Trumpet of Nordland)”

It seems that, far out on the edge of the earth 

Old nature has found its good way to give birth 

To rare and splendid abundance.
