Smedsvig Landskap AS: The viewpoint is situated along the Atlantic Ocean Road in Møre and Romsdal, near the small fishing village Askvaagen. The existing pier is lined with large natural rocks and was originally designed to make a safer harbour. A big piece of Visstallitt stone (a local variation of gneiss) enclosed by glass plates was placed at the very tip of the pier. Overhanging the existing platform it brings tourists even closer to the Atlantic Ocean and offers views over derelict fishing villages on numerous islands on the horizon. The project comments the current change from food-providing, fishery based societies to service minded, adventure-providing ones. A transformation which is affecting and increasing number of coastal communities in the region.
