Architects Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen were commissioned to design a scenic rest-stop 2’000ft above Aurland fjord in Norway and came up with this beauty wining the first prize in Norwegian tourist routes competition. The outermost end of the horizontal platform – which curves to form the structure’s support – is closed off by a sheet of glass, offering an incredible view towards the ground for all those with the guts to make the trip to the end.
