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!

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.

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.

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! 🤙
