Elements is a Pilgrim Center located in a scenic mountain landscape in Western Norway.  Elements is a visitors’ center in close connection to the wooden church, “Røldalstavkirke”, from the 13th century.  RøldalStavkirke is one of the best preserved wooden churches in Norway and the church is the most frequent pilgrimage destination in the country. In order not to conflict with the church, the pilgrim center was fragmented into 4 boxes, stepping down into the landscape and given 4 completely different characters. The boxes are placed on the site so that they relate to the old church either by facing the latter or by creating outdoor space which is oriented towards it.
