Aker Brygge Review

This area was the site of a disused shipbuilding yard until redevelopment saw the addition of residential town houses and a commercial sector. Postmodern steel and glass buildings dominate the skyline now. The area has more than 60 shops and 35 restaurants, including upmarket fashion boutiques, pubs, cinemas, a theater, a comedy club, and a shopping mall. There is an open boulevard for strolling. Service facilities include banks, drugstores, and a parking garage for 1,600.

    Aker Brygge Review

    I don't get the attraction of this redevelopment. There seems to have been no attempt to achieve any harmony amongst the old and new; nor does the new stand out in an attractive way. It may be a functional development of housing, offices, stores, and restaurants, but there are places in Oslo with much more character with just as great views.
