A photographic study of older buildings and structures encountered in Iceland. Iceland’s long history and extreme landscapes have shaped an architecture that responds to the landscape and topography. It may be the simplicity of the older buildings against the complexity of the landscape that makes them so intriguing. When looking at architecture it is typically the building driving the dialogue and discourse, and the surrounding environment tends to be secondary. In Iceland the landscape tends to shape all, the buildings respond to it, are shaped by it, become part of it, and are seen against it.
