Even if it's not directly a part of the Barcode-development, I think we could post the winner of the competition for the newest addition to Oslo's skyline and skyscraper cluster.

This will be the only true skyscraper among the new buildings popping up around Oslo S (the Oslo Central Railway station). It will also, apparently, be the highest building in Oslo and Norway when finished.

Yes, as Ingenioren posted. A much nicer road and Deichmanske Library will be among the new building replacing the highway which is going underground in a undersea sinktunnel, very similar to The Drogden Tunnel at Ĝresund Bridge.

Btw, a very long time i've seen you around samminn, please be more active, we need icelanders around!

Work is now underway in Oslo on the new corporate headquarters for Norwegian financial giant, DnB NOR.

The 17-storey scheme has been designed by MVRDV and once completed in 2012 will have 36,500 square metres of floor space for the bank to occupy.
The original relationship between MVRDV and the site dates all the way back to 2003 when they, Dark and a-lab won a competition to design a masterplan for the Bjĝrvika waterfront.

It wasn't until 2007 however that the developer OSU decided to commission a central building for the site which has now morphed into the DnB headquarters.

What they've come up with is essentially a selection of stacked cubes with steel racks, each with floor to ceiling glazing and a stone skin. Compared by the architect to a rock thanks to its blocky, if geological look that includes various nooks, crannies, and alcoves taking advantage of cantilevers.

These are in fact a continuous stream of terraces running around the building connected by wooden footbridges that can provide a number of outdoor spaces for the buildings 2,000 plus employees to take advantage of when they are not chained to their desks as well as an opportunity to walk from A-Z outside when the weather permits rather than make their way through the traditional corridors.

Norway is one of the few countries in western Europe that has been hugely affected by the current economic problems with the massive sovereign wealth fund it has built up actually being one of the main beneficiaries thanks to shrewd economic management. The scheme is being built by Vedal Project AS and has a 2012 completion date.

When it comes to modern architecture Oslo kinda blows the rest of the Nordic capitals out of the water.
