The fjordcity (which is what we call the Oslo waterfront developments) in general is fine. I love the MAD building above for example. But I was specifically talking about the DNB building which turned out fat and rather gray.

I quite like that one as well. It may look somewhat clumsy from across the water, but from up close its great.

I agree that it looks worst from far away. Luckely there are buildings planned in front of it which will hopefully go a long way to hide the worst bites.

This 20 floor appartment tower have now been approved after a small reduction in height to 18 floors.

However the Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage will probably object to this approval (like they always do to highrises and large developments).
