I took these pictures of the plot today. The old buildings have been demolished and the groundwork have started.






The tram tracks have had to be temporarily re-routed in a half-circle around the construction site.

It have now been decided that Tøyenbadet public pool and swimming facilities will be demolished and replaced with a new building with the same functions (but greater capacity).

This means good bye to this one:


This was presented as a possible replacement after a feasibility study a few years back, but I don't know if this is what will be built now or if there will be a architectural competition or something.

I have mixed feelings!
Sure, it is long overdue building a new swimming pool in Oslo, as no new pool has been built since 1983 while the population has grown by 50 %. But building on the same plot mean we need to live without the current facility in the entire construction period.
I would much rather see they build a new and much larger swimming pool closer to Tøyen metro station, ideally on the plot of the current Munch museum. With the benefits of easier access and that the current one can be kept open.

No new swimming pool since '83? Maybe it's so shocking to me since we have so many swimming pools in Iceland due to the cheap hot water. But still, that seems a really long time for a growing medium-sized city.

There are some things Oslo lack which are necessary to offer if you want respect as a "big city", but then off course Oslo`s self-esteem deficit when it comes to its "allmost-big size" is an old topic. If Growth continues and bold and right choices are made, time will work for Oslo. Sometimes, however, I think the right Choices lack - as if Oslo lies to far from Mainland Europe to sort out good and valid comparisons for itself.


Some of the Things "lacking" concern "attractions" that different segments of the population and tourists would expect to be offered in a "big city", like an standard zoo/aquarium, some indoor/all year water Entertainment (slides, etc,), maybe a planetarium. On the Cultural front, Things have improved immensely since the millenium (and when several big museums are soon to be finished). I still miss an indoor, historical exhibition at such an important location as the fortress, to mention one thing.

I just love the opera house, the way it connects into the water is so good.
