carl-viggo holmebakk: sight apparatus
the program for ‘sight apparatus’ by olso-based architect carl-viggo holmebakk defines a site for users to enjoy the view from an optimal lookout position.
intending to conceive a conspicuous object, the observatory establishes an articulated division between nature and architecture. at this point, three platforms are
built along the road, accommodating different landscape scenarios for alternative installations such as stands for geological information and viewing instruments.
pre-cast concrete elements are used throughout the sites, with stairs, bridges and pathways connecting the platform to the surrounding grounds. foundation walls
are poured on site, adapting the platforms to the local topography and environment.
