Iconic architecture in Oslo
The beautiful Oslo Opera House, designed by the Norwegian architects Snohetta, opened in 2008. The spectacular wooden structure of the Astrup Fearnley Museum of contemporary art, designed by the world-renowned architect Renzo Piano, opened in 2012.
Both of these attractions are located at the waterfront of Oslo, which has changed significantly the last years, and is still in an amazing process with modern architecture and a new seaside promenade en route. The older, two-tower City Hall is a well known landmark in Oslo, facing the main waterfront by the Oslofjord. In 2013, the Oslo authorities finally decided to build a new home to Edvard Munch’s famous paintings, after a long and controversial political process. The building “Lambda” is a modern style building to be constructed next to the Oslo Opera House on the Bjorvika waterfront.
