Euroterminalen

Kristiansand - Vest Agder

The idea of this project was born in the early 90s. The project was near dead for several years before the regulation plann was finally completed in 2001. The city council approved the regulation plan in november that year.

Euroterminalen is one of Kristiansands largest development project, and contains a new large terminal for cruice ships and trains, a shopping centre, offices, a 25 story tall hotel and residentials. After the approval the 25 story tall (89m) hotel went through massive opposition. Not much has happend since, but construction start is planned for 2006/2007 with completion 2012/2013, so there will probably be more news from this project soon.

Tall, tallest in Haugesund!

Haugesund - Rogaland

A new high-rise has been proposed in Haugesund. The high-rise will become the tallest in the city, and one of the most unique in Norway! The architect firm Brekke Helgeland Brekke AS has design this 60m/ 20 story tall residential, retail and office building (maybe hotel) which will be situated in downtown Haugesund.

Many investors is interested in this project which has recived much positive replies from politics. They say this is a very impressive and exiting proposal. The developers say this tower will be finish in three years if the city council approve the building. By my surprise many of the local inhabitants also agree to built this building. Its a very impressive and spectacular idea which will put Haugesund on the map.

Some of these buildings looks like those of new neighborhoods of Lille or Amsterdam, it seems there are a kind of Northern or Nordic (?) architecture.

Anyway I have seen all posts about the projects and realisations, in Stockholm, Oslo, Stavanger, Trondheim, etc. I regard all this urbanism and architecture as very intelligent and beautiful (the landscapes too :thumbsup: ).

I'm in love with all the Scandinavian projects I'm seeing.

Please stop calling Norway for Scandinavia! That really hurts us <_< As the rest of the world only recognize Norway as a part of scandinavia, we feel a lack of identity... :P

I never thought that we had so much urban, modern architecture. My home, Larvik, is just one big architectural disaster. The projects looks really cool on the pictures. But often, they do look cooler before than after they are built. (If anyone ever builds them)
