  • Information


Surrounded by forests and a fjord, Oslo fa-cilitates a unique combination of urban life and immersion in nature.

For a long time, the harbour areas were cut off from the rest of the city by a motorway.

But these formerly isolated areas were recent-ly rediscovered, which has led to an ex-tensive transformation of the Norwegian capital.

An increasing number of new ar-chitectural landmarks and important cultural buildings have appeared in the city's industrial and harbour areas, which also offer much needed space for residen-tial and office buildings.

Today Oslo is an appealing destination for young archi-tects as well as design and architecture enthusiasts.

The authors of this guide present over 150 important buildings in Scandinavia's smallest capital, sorted ge-ographically into seven chapters.
