Dramatic architecture set before the stunning backdrop of the Norwegian mountains

Spectacular images captured by one of the world’s best architectural photographers

The Berlin photographer Ken Schluchtmann (* 1970) is known for his signature style. Clear and cool, his im­ages are taken without the use of artificial lighting— at dusk or beneath a cloudy sky—lending his subject matter a sensual quality. The World Architecture Fes­tival in Singapore recognized his outstanding work, naming him the architecture photographer of the year in 2012 and 2013. To produce the photographs for this book, an independent project, Schluchtmann traveled over twenty thousand kilometers, passing through dramatic landscapes and profiling the inno­vative architecture projects commissioned by the Norwegian government in recent years along the country’s National Tourist Route: from the wildlife ob­servation station at Dovre National Park designed by Snøhetta to the dizzying views provided by Reiulf Ramstad’s terraces at Trollstigen, and the Steilneset Memorial by Peter Zumthor and Louise Bourgeois, which commemorates the victims of seven­teenth-century witch trials.
