In 2008, Seljord municipality made more of the myth and launched the project with the lookout tower.

The dedicated architects Rintala Eggertsson to draw, among other things, a wooden tower that provides tourists, bird enthusiasts and all interested free views of the famous water and the mysterious Telemark landscape around.

The first part of the Seljord project was a workshop with art and architecture students from Milan and stage students from the Theater College in Fredrikstad.

It had anchoring art installations to nature, “Into the landscape” and three artworks by the water to the theme.

The Periscope is sensational architecture

The next and most visible part of the project is this peacock-like tree tower.

It is 17 meters tall and gives an overview of large parts of the 14 km long water. The tower has a staircase that adjoins three different platforms.

The worm has since 1989 adorned Seljord’s municipal weapon, says Eggertsson to bonytt.com

Thus, this viewpoint is not an end point, but a form of travel, a resting place between the familiar and the myths associated with Telemarknaturen.

The team behind the tower and surroundings also included Feste Landscape Architects and Springer Kulturstudio, explains architect Dagur Eggertsson.

Active, Norwegian design environments
