Geiranger has a fairytale landscape with its majestic, snow-covered mountain tops, wild and beautiful waterfalls, lush green vegetation and the deep, blue fjord.

With a landscape so rich and pure what we propose is something untouchable and as iconic as the landscape: a circle. A simple circle functioning as a cruise ship terminal. A landmark, a beautiful and iconic structure for the people and visitors of the Geirangerfjord.
Thousands of people will land here in the summer and it is this ring that will engage them to the village. A floating platform will connect them to the dock. The dock is anchored to the landscape and to the terrain with a formal and natural gesture becoming a element of the villa, turning itself into the circle. It has a waiting room for passengers, trade, restaurant, bar, kayaks rental and energetic sustainable means allowing ships to be anchored without expending fuel.
