I visited Oldo a few years ago... I really liked the city. The centre is very urban, lively and fun, and the waterfront is really lovely. The fjord and the islands are so peaceful, too - I'd highly reccommend a visit!

All of them are wonderful but for some reason I really love the Visma. It reminds me of Tokyo buildings and it is right next to a bunch of outdoor steps. Bravo!

Guess we can, at the moment, call the MAD tower a vision. As long as there are no investors behind the proposal it's just a idea of an architect firm. If it's ever realized it will most certainly not look like the original drawings...

Nothing's been done with Helsfyr Atrium. Unless making a large pile of dirt, and leaving it there for quite some time counts

The office building approved as part of the Sjĝlyststranda develoment is regulated to 12 floors and 42 metres if I remember correctly.. Don't know anything about the new proposal though.

Yeah, it was first proposed and approved in the regulation plann with 20 floors, then regulated down to 12 floors. Interesting to hear they have changed it again, because i didn't like the design of the 12 story tower anyway, but its not good it has been resized to only 7 floors, because Sjĝlyststranda could need a taller tower then 15 floors when all the surrounding buildings if 6-10 floors tall.

When studying the render again, I realize that the building they've put up an add for at the site may be the building next to the "tower". This one:


It is black and curved. I'll see if I can take a shot one day.

Ok, that make more sense. Il guess they will built the tower at last, if they actually built it.

Another part of the Fjordcity is Sĝrenga. There are the two final proposals.

LPS - "Southpark"


Snĝhetta - "Enga for alle"

It is. I go past there on the train every day. They haven't even started digging on the sight for the large one.

I simply can't fathom how it's possible to be against the tall one and OK with those others. The tall one was the only one they even bothered trying with.

There is no logical explanation for that, only the typical "everything urban, big and impressive made by humans is bad, nature is good, if you don't go skiing in the mountains every weekend, you're not a proper Norwegian"-attitude. I remember the local NIMBY-group's biggest argument against the tower: Skĝyen is already so trafficated thanks to all the office-buildings, that this tower will make it unbearable. What the **** does 8 floors extra on a slim tower have to say for the traffic, when there are already, 20-30.000(?) people working at Skĝyen?

Charming and nifty works, the most of those have a very nice shape, although my favourite is the Nesoddtangen Brygge,

Frecuenly many cities have a great but anodinic projects. Oslo will have gorgeous architectures and lovely structures as well, congrats!

I just can't say enough how stupid these people are. Road traffic is bad on Skĝyen (who has a train station), so we can't build there. We'll build ugly lowrises on Filipstad in stead (aqward train connection)
