Interesting article in Aftenposten titled "Oslos Oxford Street?" today regarding how much space should be allocated to shopping @ Operakvarteret. In Norwegian only, sorry.

http://oslopuls.aftenposten.no/shopp...icle498203.ece

Seemingly the debate amongst the Aftenposten users isn't about future shopping-areas, but the architecture of Operakvarteret itself. Sadly there's still a great deal of anti-height opinions, still referring to Barcode as "the wall." I wonder if these people would prefer the area to remain as it did throughout the 90's? Undeveloped, unpleasant and tragically sad - especially considering it's the city center.

I for one find the proposition of adding further space dedicated to shopping welcome, as long as it doesn't "take over" too much of the quarter. Securing enough space for accommodation is more important as we want the area to remain alive after 5pm.

I really don't get why people bitch and moan about the architecture in this projects, when you have these two quite recently built boxes besides them:

And next to it:


http://www.bjorvikakonferansesenter.no/beliggenhet.asp

It must be better to build something at least someone likes and which could gain Oslo some international recognizing (the Opera Quarter), rather than built something everyone hates (the two buildings above)?

They're not so bad


I actually think that even the two examples above are way better that some other horrible buildings in Oslo. I guess its their central and exposed location that makes people judge these buildings so hard.

But consider where they are placed, the size and how recent they are, then I think they are quite horrible. That's how Barcode could have looked if some people got there way. Then we could start talking about a "wall".

in the Norway section we have a thread for each of the building projects in Operakvarteret.

This thread is meant for readers outside Norway and therefore located in the international section.

The plot consist of three buildings and I think each buildings gets different facade treatment.

It worth mentioning that this buildings is currently pending for approval (unsure of long they have gotten in the proses) where postens old letter central lies:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=708658

The highest building in Barcode (b13) will be 21 floors - Postgirobygget is 26 floors as a comparison. I think it would be weird with anything higher there. I prefer to have our highest buildings in the background.

I prefere the original Barcode proposal where we had buildings up to 100m instead.
