Oslo compared to N.Y. or Tokyo is a flea, but compared to Reykjavik or Nuuk it's pretty damn big, as well as very dense. So maybe see things in context sometimes?


Nuuk, Greenland

You are right, if the world consisted of Greenland, Iceland and Norway - Oslo would be New York - it`s just that I don`t take that perspective - no offence intended!


I don`t know why you think I need to see Things in context, I`m not bashing Oslo (if I did, which I don`t, I`d be in my full right as a Norwegian).


I only pointed out that (a) the Bjørvika Projects takes in total not 3, but 20 years to develop, (b) Oslo don`t have a single skyscraper per FCC definition and (c) to be futuristic you need to belong to an exclusive rim of cities With avant garde city Developments. Architecture equivelant to that in Bjørvika is allready wide spread. Bjørvika is at the very least 15 years on overtime to deserve the label futuristic.

A video showing how the Valle Wood office development will be constructed. As mentioned and as implied by the name, it will be built fully in wood and it will become Norways largest fully wooden office building. Groundwork have already started at the plot.

Lilleakerbyen, a re-development of the old industrial site at Lilleaker. It don't look particularly urban thought despite the developers proclaimed ambitions.

A proposed hotel closest to Lysaker.




Central square:




Map. The lower part of the map (around Lilleakerveien) is already there.


How the location looks today. There will soon be built a new metro station and probably a new bus terminal next to the train station to the right, which will make this place much more integrated into the city and will probably result in a great densification and urbanization in coming years.

The court yard/entrance area of the new under construction National Museum have been redesigned. It looks much better now than the stone dessert it was initially designed with.



Before:


And here is a construction update from the site itself:

New public swimming pool at Holmen in Asker. It is claimed to be Norways "greenest" public swimming facility and it produces more electricity than it consumes.

Five different proposals for the re-development of Marienlyst (the current headquarter of the Norwegian public broadcaster NRK). I have to say I am quite disappointed as they aren't very urban. I had hope that they would design better defined, traditional city blocks.

This is the location today. The '30s (only completed after ww2 though) NRK building will be preserved.



Proposals:

1.






2.
