Reiulf Ramstad

Scandinavian Experience


It is hard not to succumb to cliché when describing – like the suites of Grieg –the romantic beauty of northern landscapes and the depth of their impact on the identity of Nordic peoples. But in truth, even in the arenas of globalization, the Scandinavian sensibility is for Reiulf Ramstad a living reality that is far from becoming any sort of trademark. Arquitectura Viva takes stock of the work of the Norwegian studio through four buildings of daring forms that at the same time owe much to the context and to local material culture: two in the architect’s native land, one in Denmark, and another raised in France but with lyrical links to high latitudes.
