Norway will cut through an island in tribute to massacre victims How do you adequately craft a memorial for one of the worst days in a country’s modern history? That’s the question that was posed to architects and artists as part of a competition for a dual-site memorial commemorating the attacks in Norway on July 22nd, 2011. On that day, 77 people were killed, eight by an Oslo car bomb and 69 in a massacre at a youth event on the island of Utøya. After holding an open competition, Norway has decided to install a pair of memorials designed by Swedish artist Jonas Dahlberg to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the attacks.
We’re happy to share that Cabin Porn – our labor of love – yielded a new creative opportunity for us. We’re making a full-color book about the cabins you built and shared with us. Little Brown will publish it.
In the book we will share our story of Beaver Brook, as well as feature ten other cabins and their builders with original photography by Noah Kalina and stories by Steven Leckart. Plus, we’ll include hundreds of cabins submitted by the community. All of this combined, we hope, will be a brilliant reference to inspire you to make your quiet place somewhere.
Thank you for your support over the past four years, and most important thank you for generously sharing the cabins you’ve discovered, built and loved. If you haven’t shown us your cabin yet, please do now. We’d enjoy considering it for the book.
