Oslo Opera House; The roof of the building angles to ground level creating a large plaza inviting pedestrians to walk up and enjoy the panoramic views of Oslo. The angles and paving materials are also skateboard-friendly allowing skateboarders to use some areas.  While much of the building is covered in white granite and La Facciata, a white Italian marble, the stage tower is clad in white aluminum in a design by Løvaas & Wagle evoking old weaving patterns.

Getting Their Shot Photograph by Wim Uyttenbroeck, National Geographic Your Shot  “The Oslo Opera House is a very special place,” writes Wim Uyttenbroeck, who captured this picture in the Norwegian capital. “These three colorful photographers make a nice contrast against the white stone and plate glass of the building. The white clouds in the sky make the picture complete.
