  Nice Box In October, the light in Norway is cold and diffused by rain. It's "our worst month," says John Roger Holte, a Norwegian artist and builder.

Rintala says these were inspired by the Korean way of cooking: Residents and guests will cook their own food at the table. Photo by Pia Ulin.  Photo by Pia Ulin.
