Parallell assignement for the future development of Vippetangen. A historic maritime harbour area next to the Akershus Festning in the centre of Oslo.

The area has a large historical depth. The ghost of the old fortress walls are re-established as a central green grove. 
The large open plaza gives space and flexibility for mixed use events between cruise tourist, fish distributors, children school classes and youth clubs. The proposition opens up through routes into the army and fortress areas. The new fjord tram becomes the certral point of arrival and departure.
