Klimahuset Oslo – Climate, architecture & a lot of wood

"Klimahuset" is the newest addition to my favorite place in Oslo, the botanical garden. It's an innovative building & a knowledge center for climate change

The Botanical garden, my absolute favourite place in Oslo, got a cool new addition called Klimahuset. The main goal of this new exhibition space is to convey knowledge about climate change and the Earth's climate, but for me, its architecture was what dragged me in (yes, yes, professional deformation).  It is a showroom of future-oriented building solutions with intertwining high and low technology, locally sourced materials, and innovative design solutions. According to the press, this is the first building of its kind in the Nordic region and the number four “climate house” in the world.

In the outdoor areas around the house, wisdom of the weather and nature is revealed to the smallest children through fun activities and installations. So if you are curious about the climate, interested in architecture or you are looking for an educational activity for the whole family, this is definitely the place. After filling your head with information and impressions, I suggest lying down on a picnic blanket somewhere in the surrounding gardens, relaxing while looking up at tree leaves dancing to the bird talk.
