Norway: Inspiration of Oslo Opera House

First time visiting Norway, I had a lot of solo travel moments on a trip to Oslo, and this was the first place I saw. I have to say that I am so glad to visit there by myself as I can soak myself into the environment and easily feel the atmosphere the architectural team created and the concept behind it. I am fascinated by this architecture and am more than happy to share more information about this magnificent piece with you.

Oslo Opera House | Snøhetta | 2008 #挪威

The project started in 2000 and began construction in 2003.

The experiences in the daytime and nighttime were very different... Nevertheless, I adore both vibes and ambiance that it creates.

It is an ideal place to travel alone.

My previous post described and shared how peaceful and calm I felt in the place. To see it 👉 #YankiOslo

I highly recommend you take your time to visit and have an experience there.

It was a wonderful mental detox experience.

What I also appreciate is that it's accessible and inclusive to everyone.

Currently, this is my favorite contemporary architecture. Reaching the top, you can see the incredible view of Oslo.

The last slide: let me take a selfie with it :P🤳 "I was here with a smile".

Can you guess the concept and inspiration behind this stunning building's slope?

The jury characterized the 𝐎𝐬𝐥𝐨 𝐎𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐚 𝐇𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐞 (𝐎𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐡𝐮𝐬𝐞𝐭) as having strongly identifiable themes -- “𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐩𝐞𝐭,” “𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐖𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐖𝐚𝐥𝐥” and “𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐲.”

It gave me goosebumps when I experienced the building for the first time, so I captured the view and moment with my iPhone/camera.

After my visit, I immediately associated parts of the architecture with one of the themes - "The Carpet."

Open access is one of the primary pillars of the building's concept.

The slope encourages people to stroll on '𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐩𝐞𝐭' of sloping and horizontal surfaces laid out by the structure.

No lifts or stairs are required to get to the top of the building, and you can get there from the exterior.

Starting at ground level, the Opera house's roof is a single slope that reaches its peak.

Then you will discover the solid and recognizable characteristics of the brilliant design that tied the building to its culture and location.

Historical, but also Modern & Innovative.

到達建築頂部後,您可以看到奧斯陸令人難以置信的景色。 🌌




最後,自拍紀念 :P🤳 “到此一遊”,配上雖然風很大很冷但仍然安心的微笑。

當我第一次踏足這座建築時,它讓我無比平靜和震撼,我立刻用我的 iPhone/相機紀錄到景色和感覺。

參觀結束後,我查看了一些資料,建築三個主題組成 - “𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐩𝐞𝐭”, “𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐖𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐖𝐚𝐥𝐥” and “𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐲”。


開放式通道是該建築概念之一。連接地面歌劇院的屋頂是一個坡鼓勵人們在“𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐩𝐞𝐭”傾斜和水平表面上漫步達到頂峰。不需要電梯或普通樓梯,您便可以從建築外面到達到達大樓頂部。然後,您會將會看到不一樣的風景。
