Art Nouveau in Norway

VSLM decided to branch out and start a new blog dedicated solely to Art Nouveau (Jugendstil as a preferred denomination in these parts) architecture in Norway, or city of Trondheim, to be more precise.

Jugendstil in Trondheim is meant to be a visual compendium of architecture, therefore, it will mainly feature photographs accompanied by info on buildings, architects and some trivia, where applicable. It is a work in progress which will probably take some time as there are over 300 buildings to document, but you are more than welcome to join us on this adventure!

The Australian archaeologist Dr Damian Evans, whose findings will be published in the Journal of Archaeological Science on Monday, will announce that cutting-edge airborne laser scanning technology has revealed multiple cities between 900 and 1,400 years old beneath the tropical forest floor, some of which rival the size of Cambodia’s capital, Phnom Penh.
