You guys may be interested that the architect of the Oslo Opera House, Snohetta, is doing a major project in my town, San Francisco: A new addition to Mario Botta's SF Museum of Modern Art:

They have become one of the most popular firms here. They have also designed a new arena for the Golden State Warriors basketball team which is clearly inspired by the Opera House (although political opposition may stop this one from getting built):

If I`m not mistaking, Snøhetta also designed the Memorial Museum in the new WTC plaza. I don`t have any pics of it, but I have seen it IRL and it kinda looks like a smaller version of the Oslo Opera House. I might add that these highrises are great, because they show that not every Nordic country is scared of building something tall, yet again ( I am refering to Postgirobygger and Oslo Plaza Hotel). And even though I`m more of a fan of classic architecture, late modern achitecture can look cool if it`s done right, and most of these buildings are done right IMO. I also think the Plaza Hotel looks alright, and even though Postgirobygget still looks kinda bland, it is still WAY better-looking than that ugly colossal they buildt in the 70s. The 50s, 60s and 70s where horrible decades for Oslo when it comes to architecture.

Slik skal Bjørvika, etter planen, se ut ferdig utbygd. Kongsbakkeallmenningen er den grønne stripen til venstre i bildet. Helt til venstre i bildet er Sørenga, bebyggelse som står der nå. Vannstripen til høyre er Bispevika. Vannspeilet i Middelalderparken er foran på bildet. Det hvite bygget i midten, t.v. for Operaen, er Lamda

Jeg har startet en egen tråd for Bispevika her: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1647670

For øvrig er det en fordel om man bruker Engelsk i den internasjonale seksjonen av forumet.
