As an architect, museum director, and restorer, Bjerknes built a number of homes near Bergen, Norway that were the among the best designs from the war years. He also set about restoring stave churches, and he was responsible for rebuilding Old Town Bergen. Bjerknes was clearly inspired by the wild nature and unique building styles of Western Norway, but he combined this with his penchant for functionality. Includes a list of commissions.
