Suntan at the Docks


"Aker Brygge is a former shipyard area in Oslo harbour, right next to the City Hall and across from Akershus Fortress. In 1982 work started on demolishing the former shipyards and workshops of Norway’s largest shipbuilding yard. The architects, had the dream of creating Urban Qualities, the atmosphere of a living city, with the intention of providing identity, intimacy, drama, monumentality, friendliness, contrasts, humor and the feeling of festival! Today the docks are said to have the greatest number of outdoor seats in Norway". Taken by RennyBA
