"Sametinget" (5 of 7)
The Sámi Parliament building is constructed of concrete and has a steel structure - apart from the plenary meeting hall which has a laminated wood structure. This slanted concrete wall is clad with wooden planks made of unmodified Siberian larch wood, which will change appearance with age. The façade has a rhythm which is created by the vertical steel profiles that frame each window. Each profile projects upwards into a point above the steel armature that terminates the wall.
