Overview

Barcode is a destination in Oslo, Norway, well known for its striking architecture. The 12 Barcode buildings is both tall and thin, and the architecture concept has received worldwide recognition. Each building is unique, but when you see them from afar, they resemble a barcode form, hence the name. The distinctive shape is Oslo’s new skyline. When visiting the area, you will discover that it is more to experience than the modern architecture. You will find restaurants, shops, services and galleries on the street level that is worth the trip alone. Welcome!

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.

The entire area is nice to walk around, with art installations around every corner. Loads of different restaurants and cafes, but they mostly seemed quiet when we visited.

Unlike most cities I have visited Oslo has a section of the city that has buildings that are very straight and of varying heights. The locals refer to is as the Barcode. It is interesting to see and I can see how they would come...More

I took a visit to Oslo at early August, just love the Scandinavian design. How beautiful the skyline was. It shows the minimalism, unusual creativity for the skyline. Don't forget to take some cool angles for the picture to pack up your minimalism! 🤙

Very impressive buildings. Those are total new era buildings and it is really interesting to see them . You can combine it with the acrobat bridge.

Oslo appears to have largely abandoned its historic past and gone all in with modern Scandinavian design. The group of office towers known collectively as the Barcode show off the architectural creativity of the region.

The new waterfront skyline of Oslo is really cool and modern. But a lot of new buildings are popping up in front of the iconic Barcode. How cool will this be?
