OSLO | OperaKvarteret

OperaKvarteret
Bjĝrvika, Oslo - Norway

OperaKvarteret is a phase of Oslo Fjordcity development (similar to Hamburg's Hafencity). The project involves a cluster of 12 buildings with offices,
housing and retail. Dark Arkitekter AS won the competition for the plan in 2003 with their design known as "Barcode". Several Norwegian and
international architect groups are involved with the designs of each tower of Operakvarteret. The first building, PriceWaterhouseCoopers was
completed in 2007. All buildings are expected to be completed by late 2014.

Model of the 2003 winning design, "Barcode".


Model showing the usage of the buildings of Operakvarteret.

Well, there have never been more opposition against highrises in Norway than these buildings, the entire project have stopped and halted several times, though it will be built now. Too bad we won't see anything taller than 67m. Originally they wanted 1-2 highrises around 80m-110m.

Btw, welcome to the forums Sunnmĝring, vi trenger fleir nordmenn pċ forumet!

They were actually was popular among architecture magazines and got wide covarage outside Norway since it was somewhat something new. But of course, looks horrible compared to the actual highrises we're seen been built and designed right now.

This project is no doubt needed for Oslo and I welcome it.

But even though I'm no huge enthusiast for scrapers at all costs I think one or two good scrapers would be a nice addition to this development... Or somewhere quite close to it at least. Alternatively, a scraper adding more to the little "cluster" we got going with hotel Plaza and Postbygget.

I'll add some more pics related to this!




This pic was taken the day before the new Opera officially opened.


Walking on the 'roof' of the new Opera building.


Render of the new DnBNOR HQ in the barcode development.


This is an older "model" rendering, but the designs have changed since this was made.


Design for the "Isfjellet" (Ice mountain/hill) by Snĝhetta. This original design has since been more or less scrapped, I think. Unfortunately the new design is considerably more bland
