The Government Building Complex
Regjeringskvartalet, the government building complex, is located in central Oslo. The terror attack of 22 July 2011 killed eight people, injured more than 200 people, and caused considerable damage to several buildings. The offices of more than 1800 employees became unusable. New premises outside the government building complex had to be found for the Prime Minister's office, six ministries and parts of the ministerial service centre.
“Opinions are divided on the new government building complex. There are feelings and views related to the physical reminders of the terrorist attack on 22 July 2011, the history of the area, and how the new government building complex will work in the city. We have therefore chosen to present an update on the work so far. Now the Storting will have the opportunity to voice its opinion on the project,” says Minister of Local Government and Modernisation Monica Mæland.
