Sverre Fehn’s notebooks | Borja López Cotelo

These clear mornings of June they disguised the city of Oslo. Closing the eyes, allowing that the Sun should warm the skin, one could believe that he was in Palermo, in Smyrna, probably enclosedly in Cadiz or Tangier. But at the end of the street there was a green foyer that we had to cross every day: the discreet Nasjonalmuseet […]

Stroll, live, touch some buildings to know them and achieve that they emerge meanings and emotions, capturing them in a series of photographies that show an alive architecture, moved away of the preciosismo own to the field of the architecture.
