The Berlin photographer Ken Schluchtmann (* 1970) is known for his signature style. Clear and cool, his im­ages are taken without artificial lighting — at dusk or under a cloudy sky — and lend his subjects a sensual quality.

The World Architecture Fes­tival in Singapore honors his outstanding work and named him Architectural Photographer of the Year in 2012 and 2013.

To produce the photographs for this book, an independent project, Schluchtmann traveled over 25.000 kilometers, passing through dramatic landscapes and profiling the inno­vative architecture projects commissioned by the Norwegian government in recent years along the country’s National Tourist Route: from the wildlife ob­servation station at Dovre National Park designed by Snøhetta to the dizzying views provided by Reiulf Ramstad’s terraces at Trollstigen, and the Steilneset Memorial by Peter Zumthor and Louise Bourgeois, which commemorates the victims of seven­teenth-century witch trials.
