– Nordic Light and Shadow are keys to the building section. Openings are organized around sun angles which never get above 47 °. Every year the Director [of the Knut Hamsun center], Bodil Børset, sends me photos of the last horizontal band of sunlight to penetrate before the weeks of winter darkness.
Quote from his article ‘Nordic Shadow’ in our publication A New Golden Age Nordic Architecture & Design, 4 ed.
