Text description provided by the architects. The National Tourist Routes are a selection of roads that stretch through some of the most beautiful landscapes in Norway and are developed and managed by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration. Several rest stops and viewpoints are established along the routes, either to highlight specific sights and outlooks or to mark a point of departure for hiking in the landscape. There is an expressed intention of achieving high architectural quality through-out the tourist route project, and several Norwegian architects have been involved in the various designs.

Text description provided by the architects. Krekke is a place to stop for a rest along the main road through Gudbrandsdalen, but it’s also a park area for the local community of Fåvang, Ringebu. The service functions are placed inside an embankment that works as a noise barrier between the park and the highway. Daylight is admitted down to a protected sitting area inside the embankment through a prism-shaped skylight, which protrudes from the top of the barrier as a signal to passers-by.

The park and recreational areas slope from the embankment down toward the river Gudbrandsdalslågen, and a path – a ‘desire line’ - lined with light poles leads directly from the

Text description provided by the architects. Wimshurst Pelleriti has recently completed a new boathouse which lifts a 14 ft speedboat out of the water and stores it ready for a quick launch. Unusually, perhaps uniquely, the boat is stored in the specially designed eaves from where it is mechanically lowered 15 ft into the water, releasing the area below the boat for storage.

Opening up the Western Ring and airport routes with two, 2.5-kilometre parallel tunnels, it provides a safer, less-congested and more time-efficient alternative to complex drives around suburbia. Passing through some of Auckland’s most densely-populated neighbourhoods, there was no doubt that the Connection was needed – but as the largest infrastructure project undertaken in the country
