A design proposal for a series of interventions that respond to topographic and material changes at three sites along the Andøya National Tourist Route in northern Norway. The route is part of the Norwegian National Tourist Route Project; a government initiative intended to promote car tourism on 18 scenic highways by improving existing infrastructure and building new rest stops, viewpoints, and service facilities. This thesis posits that site-responsive designs and consistent architectural language can register change in the landscape, and engage visitors in the haptic experience of place.
