ugly 60s house.jpg

ugly 60s house.jpg, originally uploaded by karlakp.

I went wandering around in the lovely weather today. I love to putter around our neighborhood as there are gorgeous old farmhouses and grand old apartment buildings from the 19th century (and a very few 18th century!). Such elegant architecture with such grace and charm.
Which made coming upon this monstrosity all that much more jarring. This is a private home, not the American embassy or a doctor's office. What really kills me is the thought of the house they probably knocked down to build this crappy place! The 60's were not a good time for architecture in Oslo.

    Yep, looks like the same archi-vandals who designed the Oslo Embassy have their fingerprints all over this monstrosity.
