Victoria Terrasse, Oslo. A luxurious apartment complex that was partially bombed by the allies in the WW2.

Pre-bombing as it was built:

In the '30s with a slightly simplified face. It may be hard to see but some of the spires have been removed here.

During the war:

After the bombing which destroyed the northern part:

A empty hole where it once was a building:

After this part was "rebuilt" in contemporary design (this is how it appears today):

It always amuses me that photographs of modernist buildings have to be dressed up with arty lighting and camera angles. Seen in the cold light of day, which is how most of us experience them, they usually look abhorrent.
