Gudbrandsjuvet

Jensen & Skodvin: The main platform is constructed by 25mm laser cut steel sheets, cantilevered like a bridge around the cliff, hung in each end. The railing has a geometry that allows it to be continuous even with very different security requirements from place to place. The large inward curve allows the tourists to securely lean out over the deadly waters. The bridges are made from different materials according to what is most appropriate at each site. The platform at the parking side is made from prefabricated elements of concrete, like a bicycle chain, an element that is connected in the corners but rotated in the angle that will fit the site. This was appropriate at this site because cantilevering prefabricated elements had obvious advantages economically and practically. A related geometric concept is used for the service center.
