Porsgrunn Maritime Museum
COBE + Transform
Porsgrunn, Norway

The new saw-toothed Maritime Museum in the small Norwegian port town of Porsgrunn by Danish architects COBE and TRANSFORM manages to fit into its surroundings, by mirroring the shapes of the town's characteristic gabled roofs, while at the same time appearing contemporary with its abstract shape and aluminum facades.

Oslo, Norway

Deep in the pine forest in the outskirts of Oslo, lies the Mortensrud Church. If you do not know it's there, it's possible you would walk by without taking notice. But nevertheless, the small church designed by the Norwegian architects Jensen & Skodvin has become something of an attraction.
