Overlooking the Snøhetta mountain at Hjerkinn on the outskirts of Dovrefjell National Park resides the Norwegian Wild Reindeer Centre Pavilion. The entire site is located 1200 meters above sea level and houses a 1.5km nature path that is open to visitors. The building is designed such that it has a rigid outer shell and an organic inner core. The exterior wall has been treated with pine tar while the interior wood has been oiled. The materials used for the construction is such that it can withstand the harsh climate of Hjerkinn. This unique architectural idea was actually formed due to the natural rugged landscape of the area. It was Norwegian shipbuilders in Hardangerfjord that created the shape.
