Concrete Oslo

Concrete Oslo is a guide to concrete architecture in Oslo from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Formated as a tour­ist guide, Concrete Oslo gives the reader an opportunity to explore a great number of buildings, structures and objects through curated tours across the city, giving the reader and opportunity to reflect upon an enigmatic building tradition and to engage with the city, in literal and physical ways. Accompanying the tours are a number of theoretical essays, original drawings, unique photographs and other historic documentation.
The book springs from a master studio course, taught in 2015 by the three editors of this volume, at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. The format escapes the confines of academia and invites everyone to indulge in architectural treasure hunt in Oslo.
