from the archives #9

Norway (2009)

Travelling north on our way to the North Cape in June 2009 we spent some time in the city of Tromsø. This is the public library and archive. The extraordinary roof's structure with 4 bowed arches was based on the Mexican architect Candela's structures, and is known as Candela shell.

4 opmerkingen:

  1. Those arches certainly appear to open up an attractive space underneath. Nice reflection on those front glass facade, too.

  2. Hebben heel Tromso rondgelopen maar dit gemist. Jammer maar nu toch nog gezien. Bedankt

  3. Stunning architectural building. I could watch these even though for how long.

  4. Ja onvoorstelbaar dat we dit niet gezien hebben, zo'n mooi gebouw!


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
