The Oslo Operahouse
Today's outing was rather spectacular. The weather was fantastic - proper summer - and the destination for our little family excursion was the new Opera house here in Oslo. To walk on its roof, more specificly. We ended up having a great lunch there as well.
The architects behind the Opera is Snøhetta Arkitektkontor. There has been lots of controversy over this building, which officially opened less than a month ago, but now it seems to rapidly become our new national treasure.
I was hoping to come inside to the main stage and photograph the fantastic prism chandelier I've heard so much about, but that will have to wait. (Access only via guided tours).
