      Could the problem here in Norway be people with limited future visions, people of the Environmental Party "the Green's" and people who wants the city to remain exactly the same as what it was 100 years ago?

          I have similar sentiments, Nichu. In other threads we all agree that Alesunds Town Hall is the most ugliest building and spoiling the cities view. Please imagine the view of Trondheims panorama with this big cube. Especially the view from the hills to the fjord... Not nice in my opinion. There is enough room in this area to include the necessary space in more convenient buildings. There are enough of such views all over Asia. We don't need them here in Europe.

            So sorry to hear that it provokes you that much, but I'm not saying we should tear down the whole old part of the entire city and build skyscrapers (like they have in ...... Asia ).

            In my totally useless and silly opinion, I would like to see a signal-building in this town: something for the future and an icon for the city. Much like the opera house in Oslo or Sydney, or any other famous building somewhere in the world.

              Not to be putting myself spun up to the hate-pole here, but where in the port area is there "enough room"? The whole port area, sea front, is taken, and there is hardly any room for any expansion at the moment.

              Not even a new cruise dock do they seem to have room for.

                I understand, Jan-Olav and i agree with Sydney Opera House. Something like that would be famous. I have my doubt, if "another" skyscraper will be.
                Regarding the harbour area i think it is not necessary to spend half of the space to park cars there. They could also park under the buildings.
                I remember walking from Hurtigrutekaj to town was boring, through a deserted area.

                  I also agree that they should build this in Trondheim! Also Trondheim need a new arena for culture and sport events like i write in under the article. They have possibility to build the new "Trondheim spectrum" and can make the new building as a architectural landmark. Just like Oslo Opera House.

                    My initial quick reply to pakarang’s post link to the adressa article was simply in general agreement to a tall modern “landmark” building on the site, and thinking of an iconic example from smaller cities (and northern Europe in particular) rather than just capital cities, immediately brought to mind the Turning Torso in Malmö.

                    I’ve just come back to this thread and the ensuing discussion. Though I’d like to see such a building here I feel this tower somehow lacks the X-factor, wow-factor or whatever, that special something that all the other examples that we have mentioned in this discussion certainly have.
                    The newspaper article speaks of symbolising a “beacon”, a “lighthouse”, but I do not actually see/feel this reference, other than in height alone.

                    But much less impressive to me is the blocks of the “giant hall”. This seems disconnected in the total concept, perhaps even detracting from the impact of the tower. I can imagine someone in the future might not immediately realise the tower and hall were contemporaneous.
                    From the architectural sketch, it also seems the hall somewhat detracts from Rockheim!

                      Bikes are being stolen at a very high pace in Trondheim, could this be the solution?

                        I wouldn't store my bike in there and the cross the city by feet. A bike allows you to ride everywhere so i do it that way. My solution is to use a cheap bike no one wants to steal!

                          That one I really agree to, but for the bike thief, it's not necessarily the expensive bikes that gets stolen. Also cheap bikes are stolen, as they are seen as an easy way to get a cheap transport around town.

                              I think it is really a pity that all the windows are filled with tiny small black dots (to reduce heat loss from the building).
