Adrift at the Opera House
The Oslo Opera house is designed to masterfully blend into the landscape. It's a zigzagging structure of white, with tall windows that catch the blue of the sky and create a stunning vision in urban Oslo. A couple sits together at the end of the terrace in front of the entrance to the opera house. They enjoy the last warmth of a summer day. The jagged design of the terrace, it's white granite, the dark sea next to them give the illusion they are floating on a large slab of ice, content with only each other's company.
