Vesterheim Commons Exterior Inspiration
In this update, Vesterheim President/CEO Chris Johnson talks about the exterior design influences used in Vesterheim Commons, as well as a general overview of the outdoor space.
The concrete walls on the back of the building were suggested by Snøhetta designers and inspired by Erling Viksjø, who came to prominence in Norway after WWII as he experimented with designs in concrete and building structures. There are still many buildings in Norway inspired by his work. The fluted design in the Commons is a nod to Viksjø and Norway.
