The Speaker Line-Up

 “House Gazing-Holes for Horizontal Rain”
by Sæþór Randalsson

Anyone who’s been to Iceland for more than a week has experienced the radical precipitation of this far north Island nation. Learn how Icelanders created their own unique window system for keeping such aggressive weather outside, with decorative transition trim between corrugated siding for residential houses. This talk will describe the building system that developed between 1900 and 1920 for the first housing boom in the capital. Siding, windows, and what makes it unique to Iceland.

Sæþór is a self taught carpenter who has learned the Icelandic window system to renovate a period-house in Kópavogur.
