Statsbygg has shortlisted six teams to develop proposals for a new government quarter in Oslo. Selected from 24 submissions, the chosen teams will now have until March 2015 to prepare their ideas. The unconventional competition, which requires the inclusion of students from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, will not culminate with a single winner. Rather, ideas from all the shortlisted proposals will be extracted and used in an eventual masterplan.

The six shortlisted teams are…

  • LPO/ Arkitekt Kristine Jensens tegnestue/ Norconsult (Oslo/Aarhus)
  • Snøhetta (Oslo)
  • White (Gøteborg/Oslo)
  • BIG (København)
  • Asplan Viak (Oslo)
  • MVRDV (Rotterdam)
