The students of  NABA,  Politecnico di Milano and Fredrikstad Scenography School designed and constructed three structures around the lake  Seljord in Telemark county South Norway.

The structures had three main reasons to be built, firstly to be used as stopping places for travelers and tourists, secondly to serve as meeting points for the local inhabitants, and thirdly to comment on the local stories of a sea serpent, a continuing myth with frequent observations spanning over a hundred years of time.  At the same time, this workshop is also part of larger activity, a project called Seljord and the legends, developed and curated by Springer Kulturstudio and Feste landscape architects, organized to revitalize the local economy and to invite more people to move to the area which today suffers of desertification and aging processes.

1.Viewpoint  is situated on the Northern side of the lake on a hillside, offering a scenic view over most of the lake and valley. The project is a group of six spaces or rooms forming a circle in the edge of the forest and the bare bedrock.

2.Smoke sauna  was built in a bay on the Southern side of the lake by the road. It is standing on pillars due to flooding, consists of sauna room with smoke fireplace and a terrace. The building acts as a wall creatinga more private situation on the lake side, turning a more closed side to the road. Owing to a ramp from the road, It is possible to enter the sauna also with wheelchair.

3.Fishing camp is to be found in the tip of Tellnes peninsula, roughly in the center of the lake. This installation is carefully located in a bedrock crack in order to maintain the open landscape as it was. It offers a bridge for easier communication, a roofed shelter and a fireplace.

Design and site visit took place 25.9. and 26.9., the building period was during 27.6.-3.10. Main material is wood, with natural stone fundament. These three installations will also support the largest project, a viewing tower to be built later closer to Seljord center by the lake shore.
