Modern Architecture – Ormen Lange: Norway

Is it only me that thinks this building is really sexy? Credit goes to JAJA, an architecture office based in Copenhagen, Denmark, who has revealed this proposal for an office and shop complex in Sandnes, Norway. The project occupies 1139,930 ft (13000 m). The building, named Ormen Lange, snakes through the landscape and lifts itself up to create a new landmark that ensures a fantastic view. It was named after an ancient Viking Ship, which was called “Worm Lange” or long worm. With beautiful moving lines, and a sleek modern look, the project is quite stunning. Just like on a Viking Ship the faade rises up at the end of the building and provides a glorious majestic expression.
