As mentioned in previous posts I have been studying in Copenhagen with the Danish Institute of Study Abroad. In the last week we were treated to study tours to either Norway and Sweden or Finland and Sweden. My group traveled to Norway and Sweden. My first reaction to the news that I would not be going to Finland (we did not choose where we would be going) was that of a bit of disappointment as I was hoping to see some Aalto on this trip. In hindsight I am very happy that I was able to see Norway and Sverre Fehn works that come along with that.
The week long tour started with an over night ferry ride from Copenhagen to Oslo. We quickly moved into fast paced Architecture tour mood to see the great number of buildings we had to see. Here is the list what those that we visited...
DFDS Ferry Termanal- 3XN Copenhagen
Aker Brygge- Oslo Norway
Nasjonalmuseet- Sverre Fehn, Oslo Norway
Den Norske Opera & Ballet- Snøhetta, Oslo Norway
Hedmarks Museet- Sverre Fehn, Hammar Norway
Holmenkollen Ski Jump- JDS, Oslo Norway
Vigeland Sculpture Park- Oslo Norway
Viking Ship Museet- Oslo Norway
Norske Folk Museet- Oslo Norway
Villa Stenerson- Arne Korsmo, Oslo Norway
Mortensrud Kirke- Jensen & Skodvin, Norway
Lars Lerin Museum- Sweden
Arkitectur Museet- Stockholm Sweden
Moderna Museet- Rafeal Moneo, Stockholm Sweden
Stockholm Stadbibliotek- Gunnur Asplund, Stockholm Sweden
Hammarby Sjöstad- Stockholm Sweden
Markuskyrkan- Sigurd Lewerentz, Stockholm Sweden
Woodland Cemetary- Gunnur Asplund & Sigurd Lewerentz, Stockholm Sweden
Woodland Chapel- Gunnur Asplund, Stockholm Sweden
Resurrection Chapel- Gunnur Asplund, Stockholm Sweden
Holy Cross Chapel- Sigurd Lewerentz, Stockholm Sweden
Of special note The Oslo Opera and the Sverre Fehn works were all breathtaking and inspiring. An earlier study for DIS I did on Korsmo's Villa Stenerson also made that a treat (more on that in my next post I hope).
I am not going to elaborate too heavily on the trip as much as I will share a few images. If you are interested in play by play of the trip (perhaps you are contemplating going to DIS and want to know more about it) I would suggest reading some of the blogs kept by some of my classmates here...
