Carl Berner Metro Station
The project aims to showcase innovation through the interpretation of Oslo as a thriving and unique European capital, characterized by distinct climate conditions. A metro standard for Oslo must have a rougher response to form than the refinement of those in continental Europe. The project's expression results from a very conscious use of elements and materials that represents the city's nature and character.
The main concept, Urban Nature, is thus a pragmatic answer which can be applied to transform hundreds of the city's metro stations. The experience of the metro system through this "Urban Nature" transformation will be an interplay between each site's specific characters, station facilities, architectonic expression, and the high-tech character of the metro trains. MetroOslo will be manifested by the project's distinctive structures within these specific environments.
