A new exhibit at the Nordic Heritage Museum focuses on contemporary Norwegian architecture. “Lost in Nature: The Architecture of Jarmund/Vigsnæs” features photographs and models created by the Oslo-based architecture firm Jarmund/Vigsnæs, which the artist is a partner. “This exhibition will highlight the Nordic tradition of creating elegant spaces that are sensitive to the natural landscape,” said Eric Nelson, executive director of the museum.
Although artist Einar Jarmund is from Norway, he received his Masters degree from the University of Washington and lived in Seattle before returning to his home country to start the firm.
The exhibit showcasing the contemporary architecture runs through November 14th at the Nordic Heritage Museum (3014 NW 67th St.) Admission is $6 general; $5 seniors & college students; $4 children over 5 years. Museum hours: Tues-Sat 10 am to 4 pm; Sun 12 noon to 4 pm; Mon closed. (Photo by Nils Petter Dale, courtesy of Jarmund/Vigsnæs Architects.)
