Designed by Todd Saunders & Tommie Wilhelmsen with “nature first and architecture second” of design concept, the Aurland Look Out is a dramatic bridge sited 640m over Aurland, Norway. The structure is 4 m wide, 30 long, and 9m high out at the very end.
To make the situation even more dramatic it was important for us to create the experience of leaving the mountainside. We wanted people to come out in the air. The construction creates a distinct horizon; a bridge in the open room of this large fjord. It is imperative that the landscape and the vegetation not altered, but are protected so that one came come out from the landscape and experience it from new standpoint.
