Oslo’s Guide to Nordic Architecture

October 7, 2016

I don’t claim to be an expert on architecture but if I had to pick a favourite style out of those I know about it would be Nordic.

According to google, Nordic Classicism is an architectural style that was popular in Scandinavian countries between 1910 and 1930. Think art deco meets functionalism with a minimal edge then throw in a whole heap of wood for good measure, that’s Nordic.Not surprisingly, with minimalism on the rise, the Nordic style is back in vogue and pretty much everyone is raving over clean white walls, wooden panelling and gigantic windows.If you’re heading to Oslo, the Nordic-style architecture is everywhere you turn. From the ultra-modern apartment complexes to the delightful ice-berg-esque Opera House.
