Trollstigen Tourist Route Project

Project: Trollstigen Tourist Route Project
Designed by Reiulf Ramstad Architects
Client: Norwegian Public Roads Administration
Location: Romsdalen, Norway
Website: www.reiulframstadarkitekter.noThe showstopping Trollstigen Tourist Route Project is work of Reiulf Ramstad Architects, defying Norway's extreme and hostile nature. The architects took upon a challenge of building in such environment while at the same time not taking away from the showstopping location. 
"Trollstigen plateau is exceptional. When we entered the competition launched in 2004, the shite had been completely spoiled: there was an astonishingly ugly parking lot and poor quality buildings, prefabricated for the most part, whose sole purpose was commercial. I'm always shocked to see how the most beautiful places are destroyed by the pressure of tourism… So I reestablished a conscious relationship between nature and visitors, between architecture and the environment". – Reiulf Ramstad forOnce in a Lifetime book by Gestalten.
