Are you for real? 90% of all new building are cheap shit like you describe. Just look at the surrounding buildings to the mall in the last page.

This is how most project looks like. More depressing than this would be hard to find.


Besides, Oslo is a fast growing city with no room to build. We need to build dense and we can't build 100ms high "colorful wooden houses with pitched roofs." It's no god damn village.

Hell, no. I'm not talking about pseudo trash like that. I really mean those in a traditional sense, like in Bergen.
Something like that:

Even such ones are acceptable, though they aren't quite urban:

We have proper historic, wooden houses here too - take a look at buildings in the middle of these two pictures from central Oslo as an example. But we don't need to cheapen the look of these actual historic structures with building modern wooden houses that mimic the looks of them without being "quite there".

Well, most of Oslo is just way too modernist for an old European capital and my taste. But that's a different story.

Let's head back to the renderings.

The modern answer to replicas of these nice old buildings are not as lovely. I want the same as you want, but only in smaller towns. Oslo is a 1 million large city, which means we can't have smaller houses everywhere anymore,. We already have more of it than elsewhere in the world and it creates horrific unurban cities with suburban centers full of malls and the traffic jams are as bad as in overpopulated cities in China.

But that's not due to wooden buildings, but suburban and "americanized" planning structures and the likes. Scandinavian towns are too spread out for my taste anyway, you really should build more within blocks. That's also possible with wooden architecture, but stone buildings are better on that purpose of course.

Most of Oslo consist 19th century buildings. The exceptions to this is where the central station is placed (vaterland), where the town hall is (vika) and all these new projects. However despite what you may ever feel about the city, it is not possible to build historic buildings - they only become historic through passing times. It is better to build proper modern structures than make no excuse for their age.

Which is what we are currently addressing with many of the projects going on today. Check out Tjuvholmen and Vulkan as examples of this.

Problem with wood is that you can't build very big nor tall. Making it safe from fire and other dangers wood come with makes it more expensive than today's methods (there are barely any wooden buildings taller then 4 floors). Of course we should built more within a block, and Tjuvholmen, Operakvarteret and Aker Brygge is fine examples of this. But we could not have done that with wood. Anyway, one can always use wood on concrete/steel buildings which is popular, but still, its something completely different than the wooden buildings you are referring to.

Indeed, and - ironic enough - the reason to why you will barely find any proper historic buildings in Oslo (beside the castle, old aker church and few other stone buildings) is that we built in wood which the Swedes later burned down to the ground, and hence why it was prohibited to use wood when they started rebuilding the city in 1624.

^ Thanks for sharing! Though I don't know whether to like this or not. It should be build elsewhere I think. A highrise somewhere around the existing ones would be way better. Munich should finally get something like a skyline, now it already started to build more and more highrises.

I just want to say thank to the guys uploading these wonderful images. Today I thought I could help by adding visualisation of the new Siemens HQ because I'm in touch with Siemens PR people for work and the announcement only came today. But when I log in, I se eyou guys have already beaten me to it!

Congratulations on making such a fantastic thread!

better to download the pictures in large resolution, then post them in preferred resolution since this thread was meant to be a place you could view numbers of large sized renderings without having to click links to see them.
