A Brief History of Icelandic Architecture From the Age of Settlement up until the turn of the 20th Century, turf houses dominated Icelandic housing design. These abodes were in essence timber houses, methodologically based upon the longhouse designs of Norway, Sweden, Denmark and the Scottish Isles, but adjusted to specific Icelandic conditions.

However, Icelandic artists quickly caught up with their international peers with the introduction of the avant-garde in the sixties and seventies. Today, the local art scene is thriving in an international dialogue as local artists exhibit abroad and vice versa, artists from all over the world come to Iceland to create and exhibit their work.
