Norwegian Embassy In Nepal
Speaking of angly awesomeness, we bring you a more recent example: the Norwegian Embassy in Nepal. In many ways this is the building that Albert Ledner's aspires to be. The material progression is the same: masonry base, zigzag glass, powerful roof profile. The architects for the embassy, Kristin Jarmund Architects, simply refined the palette: rip rap looking stone, mullionless glass, simplified roof profile (to eliminate waterproofing issues, no doubt). Still, the comparison is worth making, if only to see the common ideas at work.
