Memorial at Utøya, Norway by 3RW Arkitekter

Thursday, July 30th, 2015

Article source: 3RW Arkitekter

When a big tree in the forest dies, an organic process that creates what we know as a clearing begins – open room in the otherwise dense forest. We want to develop the memorial on Utøya as such a clearing; forming a clear spot and highlight all the beautiful landscape qualities that are already in place and in contact with the surrounding environment.
