The Icelandic stone and turf fishing station at Bolungarvik


"When one creates green roofs the houses themselves become part of the landscape." Freidensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000). This is one of Iceland's 18th century fishing stations. It's built using thick dry stone walls with a timber roof under thick insulating layers of turf. This is the maritime museum just outside Bolungarvik. Read about Iclandic fishing stations. Thanks to Chris Gordon of for the beautiful picture.
