Hamsun, Holl, Hamaroy.
HOLL. Langdalen, Erik Fenstad.
Hamsun, Holl, Hamaroy.
Steven Holl has set up a documentation centre for the Norwegian author Knut Hamsun (1859 -1952) on Hamaroy, in northern Norway. This unconventional building reflects the author's no less unusual personality. The centre in the barren landscape of Hamaroy, where Hamsun lived and worked, the silence and solitude, challenge visitors to involve themselves with him and his work. The book records the connection between Hamsun, the architecture and the landscape. Photographer Iwan Baan relates the landscape and the building to each other, and historical documents illustrate Hamsun's contradictory life and influential work, et al. the novel Hunger (1890), with which Hamsun achieved his fame. In 1920 the poet was awarded with the Nobel Prize for Literature.
