Oslo – The City with a BARCODE

The Oslo Waterfront

As Oslo has been upgrading its waterfront the last 20 years, a number of new buildings have been popping up. The main development has been taking place in an area know as Bjørvika. This former industrial part of town is now where you find the Opera House (2008), the Munch Museum (2020) , the Barcode buildings (2016) and many more.

So why are they called the Barcode, and what do they look like? Join me as a walk amongst this fascinating collection of buildings here in Oslo.
