The Barcode area in Oslo, Norway
One of the newest neighborhoods in Oslo is the Barcode Project. My host, Melissa Hegge, whose number one awesome design blog you should check out http://www.ideastosteal.com turned me on to this area.
The exciting architecture create fun shapes when looking straight up and I was very happy to see the Barcode Project. A quick check on wikipedia explains that this area is also a bit controversial amongst some residents of Oslo for the odd shaped buildings. Time will tell, but I like them today. This was photographed on my first day in Norway where it rained almost the entire day. Luckily I found a little shelter from the rain and was able to make this shot before getting too wet.
