long 18 national tourist roads in Norway, new architecture and design has been given the task of enhancing the landscape. This unique initiative was launched in an exploratory period between 1999 and 2004, when it was decided which roads and attractions would be included. The first project was launched in 2003, and by 2005 all 18 roads will be completed with their enhanced attractions.

The initiative, which is being led by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, has already achieved international recognition for its exciting architecture. These are small, but eye-catching projects such as vantage points, lay-bys and service functions that serve to reinforce the way tourists experience the Norwegian landscape.
Two architectural councils have been assigned to the project, and major sums of money invested to develop innovative solutions and guarantee high quality in all stages of the construction process.
