Oslo: Learning to Fly
Erling Fossen (Ed.), graphic design WAAITT
More has happened in Oslo over the last 40 years than in the previous 1000. Oslo – Learning to Fly is first and foremost a documentation of the transformation of this former sleepy village into what Jones Lang LaSalle has called “A new emerging world city”. Oslo has seen continuous growth since 1984, and has been among the fastest growing cities in Europe for decades. The story spans from the conversion of a major shipyard into the award-winning, multi-use borough of Aker Brygge in the late 1980s, and into 2030, when the transformation to a post-industrial city will be complete. This book is the first comprehensive presentation of Oslo’s radical transformation.
