Is this Legoland or actual buildings? So much ugliness, in such a beautiful environment. What a sad waste. Modernism is becoming more idiotic day by day.

Funnily enough saying it looks like a theme park is usually the derogatory terms used by hardcore modernists to dismiss everything that does not completely disregard humans.

If you are referring to the project above then I can't say I agree. I think it shows a nice variety in in colours and have a certain human scale. Although it looks quite artificial now, I think it will turn out to be a very pleasant place to be and live when the surrounding blocks gets developed and it gets more settled with greeneries and so on. It is basically a modern take on new urbanism. I think the roof looks quite cheap, but otherwise I would like to see more of that, not less.

I assume you are thinking of the green roofs? Yes, that have become very popular (again) in Norway to reduce risk of floods, reduce the amount of particulates in the air and to reduce the urban heat island effect.
