A+U 518: Norwegian Architecture Toward Sustainability

The latest issue of one of our favorite magazines, A+U, has just arrived to the ArchDaily office from Japan. This issue’s main theme is “Norwegian Architecture Toward Sustainability," in which you can find projects previously featured by AD, like the amazing Trollstigen National Tourist Route by Reiulf Ramstad Architects, Rintala Eggertsson's Seljord Watchtower and Høse Bridge, Jektvik Ferry Quay by Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk, Helen & Hard's Vennesla Library and Culture House, the Statoil Regional and International Offices by a-lab and many more. Full info + content after the break.

From the Publisher. November 2013 issue of a+u is focused on architecture in Norway. Norwegian architects have traditionally searched for a way to build a relationship with the environment and developed their unique architectural expression. Included in this edition are 13 works and two essays that explore how Norwegian architecture faces today's global theme "sustainability in architecture".
