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.
