DESCRIPTION
 
Description
The information system is housed in a wall, 37 m long and 2,4 m high, composed of planks of pinewood and covered by a slab of prefabricated concrete elements. Opposite the wall are set the large masses of Knut Wold and Kallo Giske-Ødegaard's sculpture. The area is separated from the road by a double wall of rough stone.
