in june 2017, bane NOR eiendom — a subsidiary of the norwegian state railways — invited four teams to propose plans for the site. the brief called for designs that interacted with their surroundings, while providing good infrastructure for the area’s future development. renderings of reiulf ramstad architects’ winning scheme illustrate a tree-populated tower, which comprises a stacked series of volumes. at its base, a pergola containing a range of public space connects the podium of the high-rise structure to its surroundings.
