More pictures of this project. It don't look particularly good if you ask me. It looks like they have put absolutely no thought into the appearance of the building at all.

I think both Bristol and Slottparken are better looking.

So great to see all this construction - but where are the landmark buildings! where are the buildings that will feature on the cover of magazines?

The library, the Munch museum and later the new central station could become landmarks. I don't think it is lack of landmarks that are the problem, it's more the quality of the fillers in between them.

I think the new Munch museum has the potential as a landmark, the library not so much. Barcode will become less a landmark when it is hidden behind other buildings. What we need is of course 3-4 scrapers between 150-250 meters to complete the skyline..

What's interesting is how quickly Barcode has become the stock image of Oslo in the news and contemporary urban living in Norwegian ads. The images are always dated because you can see it's missing recent construction. When they're all done, the only place one will get the iconic Barcode look will be from Ekeberg,
