Eastern Norway Innlandet SØR-FRON

Vegskille: Oktagon

  •  /  km From You

At Harpefoss, the architects Rintala / Eggertsson together with 18 architectural students have made two installations at Klokkarstranda. The work is called Octagon and both parts have an octagonal shape, made in wood.

With their installation at Harpefoss, Rintala Eggertsson architects would like to put the brakes on a little and allow the visitor to experience nature at a slower pace – with emphasis on the gradual processes of nature that humankind has had to learn to understand throughout history. By creating two octagons (eight-sided structures), a closed-loop geometric shape is introduced in nature. This will gather people around two natural elements; fire and water. The installation by Strandtjønn is a form of walkway providing a closed and focused “journey” in contrast to the linear journey through Gudbrandsdalen. At Hella, the octagonal construction has been elevated to create a space with a glimpse of Lågen and the surrounding forest, but also to raise the eyes towards the sky.

Rintala Eggertsson architects focus on education, planning, architecture, and public art. An important aspect of the operation is to bring students and commissioning companies together for full-scale design and construction, such as here at Harpefoss.
