Ground language

Attention paid to ground (paving) in Iceland, and Reykjavík in particular, is incredible. These pictures are a sampling of the rich, exterior ground language found throughout the city. The detail and care put into these surfaces emphasize a ground-ed priority.

  1. I too, loved the variety of patterns and textures that the paving provided. What a nice way to create areas of interest when vegetation is scarce. These were one of the ways that I learned to recognize where I was in the city. I was also struck by the use of lava rock in vertical surfaces.

  2. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be what precisely I’m looking
    for. can you offer guest writers to write content for you personally?

    • I’d be happy to add to my blog…send what you may have along and I’ll put it up (crediting you). I still have more I want to add to this work, I have a lot more research that I haven’t touched, but I came back and got a job (first one in the field) which is incredibly exciting and exhausting. Hopefully now that I’ve been settled almost a year I will get back to the blog. Thank you for your nice message and again, I’d be happy to add your comments, posts, etc. to the blog. Perhaps the best way is to send information to my personal email. ker2w@virginia.edu.
