Since the opening in 2008, pictures of the angular architecture seemingly arising from the waters of Oslo Fjord have become known around the world and today are considered the keystone signature of the Oslo Opera House. This was precisely the intention of the firm of architects behind this iconic design, Snøhetta, which wanted to make the roof a platform accessible to all and in so doing create a new public space in the center of Oslo. A parallel wish was to create a new landscape that would draw together the natural beauty of Oslo Fjord and the city. In the foyer, we are met by a light, open space with a large, undulating oakwood wall.
