    Fantastische paviljoens van Rintala Eggertsson Architects aan de Noorse kust bij Sandhornøya. De paviljoens zijn gemaakt in het kader van het reizend arctische SALT Festival, dat in verschillende landen rond de Noordpool gehouden wordt.

    "SALT begins its journey upon an Arctic beach on the mountainous island of Sandhornøya, south of Bodø, Northern Norway, 29th August 2014 until 6th September 2015. Here, at this remote location, surrounded by breath-taking nature, visitors can discover a place to engage the mind, body and soul. SALT will over the coming years travel across the northernmost part of our planet, making a home in Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Ireland, Scotland, Spitsbergen, Alaska and Russia. SALT is an ambitious and inspiring concept designed to stir the imagination. Like nothing that has come before, it will also leave no physical trace. SALT is an initiative for arts, culture and environment that will each year move to a new location in the Arctic. SALT uses the Arctic nature as a framework for strong arts and cultural experiences.”

    Drawing House (I love traditional Japanese architecture, especially the Tea House. Technically, the Tea House is a building that was designed for the single purpose of preparing and drinking tea. Simple. But tea drinking in Japanese culture reached a level of religion. It became a kind of spiritual meditation, part of Zen. Thus the Tea House is in some ways religious architecture. It is interesting to compare the tea house to the medieval cathedral. Both buildings are created to serve a spiritual purpose. The cathedral is a large, towering, overwhelming structure built to impress the visitor with the grandness of God. The interior of a cathedral is meant to elevate the spirit. The tea house, on the other hand, is a small container that offers a personal space for introspection.

    It is the idea of a small building designed for personal introspection that inspires the “Drawing House” model. It is a personal piece. While I am not a Zennist and I do not take to drinking tea as a spiritual activity (I do drink tea but not with that purpose), I draw and do think of drawing as a spiritual activity. And that is what the Drawing House is for. It is a structure that offers a variety of spaces and a variety of atmospheres to draw.

    The main drawing space is on the first level. It has a built-in table long enough to enable the drawing of scrolls (I draw in a variety of formats). It also has a built-in storage compartment for art supplies and built-in shelves. The atmosphere of the drawing space can be manipulated by the sliding doors located on two of the walls. When fully closed, the doors seal the room, offering privacy and seclusion ideal for introspection. When fully open, a large portion of the corner of the building allows a view to the landscape outside and lets natural light into the interior space.

    The secondary drawing space in on the second floor. It also has a built-in long drawing table. The space’s main feature is the sky “door” (how this would work in reality I have not detailed yet). The large sky door opens the ceiling to the heavens. Thus the artist can feel like he is sitting under the clouds with God looking at the artist’s creations.

    There are two other drawing spaces in this structure. One is the balcony on the second floor and the other is on the exterior of the building on the deck

    The facade isconstructed from flat, vertical aluminum slats, which, in places, are twisted outwards in bowed forms. Tall, vertical undulations are generated, which present an open or a closed aspect depending on the angle under which they are viewed.

    On the lower level the colour yellow is used, which gradually changes to green towards the top of the building.

    In the interior, two internal vertical voids allow daylight to enter the interior functioning as a form of internal facade. The two voids have the geometry of asymmetrical truncated cones which mirror each other vertically. Shared walkways surround these internal voids, creating a clear organisation whereby dark corridor systems can be avoided.On the ground floor, where daylight is at its lowest, yellow is used. Per floor this colour then deepens through to orange and finally to red on the uppermost level.
