The 77 individuals who lost their lives during the 2011 terrorist attacks in Norway will be commemorated by this competition-winning intervention by Swedish artist Jonas Dahlberg to sever a strip of headland from the coastline near Oslo. Dahlberg plans to pay tribute to victims by creating “a wound or a cut within the landscape” that will symbolise the feeling of loss created by the events of 22 July, which included the bombing of a government quarter in Oslo and the shootings that followed on the nearby island of Utøya. The artist plans to make a 3.5 metre-wide slice between the surface of the landscape and the waterline in the Norwegian village of Sørbråten - just across the water from Utøya - effectively making it impossible to reach the end of the headland on foot.
Artist’s residence and studio in Sagaponack, New York by Selldorf Architects. “An artist commissioned this house and studio on 17 acres on eastern Long Island. Inspired by typical New England farm structures, the house, studio, garage, and pool pavilion form a quartet of taut, shingled and gabled volumes arranged around a central courtyard. The structures are positioned to provide a series of outdoor rooms, emphasizing the spatial relationship between buildings. Materials used for the buildings mirror the traditional vernacular, including cedar siding.” Photos: Nikolas Koening.
For David Zwirner’s second location in Chelsea, Selldorf Architects designed a 30,000 sf building that will be the first LEED certified commercial gallery in the U.S. The neighborhood’s industrial-aesthetic is the inspiration for the exposed concrete façade. The concrete is contrasted by teak paneling at the street level and on the window frames above.
