Out of Office: Road Trip Through Norway’s National Tourists Routes Project


This writer is headed off to Norway this afternoon on a press trip to check out the country’s ongoing National Tourists Routes Project, an effort by the government to create “experiences” along their scenic driving routes by way of architecture and design (Peter Zumthor, Louise Bourgeois, and Snohetta have all been involved thus far). Assuming we don’t fall into a fjord or wear ourselves out jetting across the country, we’ll be checking in from the road next week, and likely posting once we get back about the trip (which we need to mention is being funded by the country’s Consulate General office in New York and the Innovation Norway organization). Have any tips on what not to miss while we’re there, drop us a line in the comments.

And just one final reminder before this writer heads out: our Rem Koolhaas: A Kind of Architect Giveaway ends tomorrow night. Get your entries in! We’ll announce a winner on Monday.
