The steel structure, completed last month, cantilevers nine metres over a ridge on Mount Isidor.You’re looking at the Aurland Lookout in Norway - this amazing structure was designed by Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen of Saunders Architecture, and is part of Norway’s effort to get rid of stupid tourists by telling them it’s a giant slide.

Top of Tyrol by astearchitecture
The viewpoint platform on Mountain Isidor in Tyrol, Austria is a drawing in the snow, it forms an architectural edge walker and causes interplay between construction and landscape.
The orchestration and oversubscription of the existing topography transforms landscape into built architecture which mediates between statics and dynamics, between stagnancy and new perspectives.
Trail and platform are placed in brittle rock. Its lamellas will disappear in the snow for six month a year. Only the cantilevering bracings over the north wall will be visible in winter time.
