If you like modern architecture, go check this out. Most of the buildings are absolutely beautiful and definitely different. See if you can pick out the one designed by the famous Snøhetta

Barcode is a line of new buildings between the railway and Oslo Opera. There is still much construction going on.

The structure of the buildings looks like a barcode and from the Opera rooftop you have a great view to Barcode. Even though they were still building and some places were under construction it looks different and interesting.

Cool architecture. The two bridges next to barcode buildings are also good photo points. Good selection of nice restaurants.

We have been staying at the bjorvikka apartments which are right next to the barcode region. This area is just a mere ten minutes walk to central station and very confident for everything. There are two supermarkets nearby and a super fruit and veg shop...More

This is how it looks when city is involved with planning and selects projects not only based on price but based on great design. Awesome pieces.

Unique, interesting series of high rise offices & apartments with trendy, upmarket restaurants at ground level, interspersed with the occasional sculpture. This former industrial area is undergoing huge regeneration. Those that are completed look like a barcode. Worth a visit.

The Barcode is series of buildings near the Opera House that reminds the locals of a barcode. Although it is a unique architecture, I prefer the buildings of a century or two ago.

Very beautiful buildings by the sea. Architecture for the modern people, and I just love those buildings. Take a look at the Place. Near by is the Oslo Opera House and the New Munch museum.

The Barcode Project consist of five high rise buildings on former dock and industrial land near the Opera House. They were completed in 2016 . There was a debate about the actual high of the buildings. I think they look great.
