Dagens citat

"This neglected, often despised, and misunderstood heritage is a key factor in the identity of Icelanders. ... In the subconscious, all Icelanders live in turf houses. ... I see a lot of potential in a 'revival' of this old heritage in reinterpretations and integrations of many of its unique aspects in contemporary, sustainable, green architecture."

Hannes Lárusson, initiativtagare till utställningen Íslenski bærinn utanför Selfoss om isländska torvhus, i Slate om torvhusens betydelse.
