The design and construction of Oslo City Hall spanned a dramatic thirty-year period in Norway's history. Architectural fashions were shifting. The architects combined national romanticism with modernist ideas. The elaborate carvings and ornaments showcase the talents of some of Norway's finest artists from the first half of the twentieth century.
