Architecture

✱ Scandinavian Exploration by Evan Troxel

Last year my wife and I went on an amazing trip to Scandinavia. We were afforded this opportunity because I won a travel fellowship competition called Xref that’s awarded annually by HMC Architects where I work.  

Recently I gave the following presentation of my epic trip to my colleagues. I told the story and accompanied it with ~500 slides of original photos and videos that I’m very proud of.

It’s a long presentation, but I think you’ll like it. Grab some popcorn and settle in.

and

Do Give: Books on architects you have never heard of
The main thing: the less the buildings in the pictures look like actual buildings to you, the better.

It's funny because it's true.
