Oslo: Architectural Guide (Paperback)
Email or call for price
Surrounded by forests and a fjord, Oslo facilitates a unique combination of urban life and immersion in nature. For a long time, the harbor areas were cut off from the rest of the city by a motorway. But these formerly isolated areas were recently rediscovered, which has led to an extensive transformation of the Norwegian capital. An increasing number of new architectural landmarks and important cultural buildings have appeared in the city's industrial and harbor areas, which also offer much needed space for residential and office buildings. Today Oslo is an appealing destination for young architects as well as design and architecture enthusiasts. The authors of this guide present over 150 important buildings in Scandinavia's smallest capital, sorted geographically into seven chapters.
