The «Nordic Light» tower will emerge as a lighthouse for the railway’s sense of society, sustainability and environmental friendliness. At the same time, it will be a forward-looking and robust hub where transport, travel, work, leisure, culture and industry merge with Oslo Central Station and its surrounding context in a functional and beautiful way.
«Nordic Light» is a forward-looking and site-oriented project, based on the human-friendly as well as on the productive and environmentally friendly Nordic culture.
