Erling Viksjøm

Norwegian modernist architect

1910-1971

Amongst his award winning projects:

Bakkehaugen Church, Tåsen, Oslo

Trømso Bridge

He created in the 1960s a concrete method called Naturbetong or natural concrete which was and continues to be created by sandblasting concrete with stones. The method was adopted by Pablo Picasso and Karl Nesjar who used it on a (now demolished) Y-Block government building in the central government district of Oslo.
