BOOK SORIA MORIA 

About Soria Moria 

Soria Moria is a work of art sauna - glittering like a piece of jewelry in Lake Bandak! 

Soria Moria is the first installation in the project "Vannvegens fortellinger"/ "Tales of the Waterway", which is divided into 6 parts where each of the canal municipalities will have their own artwork. It is the Telemark Canal Regional Park, together with the municipalities, who is behind the project.

In Tales of the Waterway, art, architecture and light are used as instruments in a comprehensive concept to highlight the attraction of the landscape and make the places along the canal more visible. "The main idea is that visitors and people living in the area will experience the canal landscape in a new way," says architect David Fjågesund in Feste Landskap / Arkitektur. Fjågesund is part of the Nordic design team behind the project, which also has a landscape architect, lighting designer and artist. http://www.feste.no/telemark-canal-soria-moria

The artistic idea
The inspiration for the sauna is derived from surrounding landscape and history. The characteristic silhouette of the building is an interpretation of the steep mountainsides surrounding the Bandak lake. The wooden shingle cladding is inspired by local building techniques. Integrated in the cladding are gleaming golden shingles. The gold is a reference to local folklore; to the mythical and outlandish. It also references the obvious contrast which arose between the soft-spoken people of Telemark and lavish upper-class foreign travellers during the establishment of Dalen Hotel at the end of the nineteenth century. 

For the public
Soria Moria serves as a focal point for everyone - a place of rest and reflection, for meeting and conversation. For local residents arranging sauna nights, the hotel guest strolling in his bathrobe through the park, the hiker coming down from the mountain or the tired cyclist after cycling the canal.
