Oslo Spektrum Arena utvendig


The arena opened in December of 1990 and had its first whole year of operations in 1991.

Oslo Spektrum was originally designed as Oslo City Hall and built as part of the effort to revitalize the area around “Grønland”. At the same time, the arena’s location was anchored in the municipality’s plan to try to move the centre of Oslo eastwards. The arena was to become a multi-purpose arena with international specifications, to be able to accommodate several different events, both national and international. Until Telenor Arena opened at Fornebu in 2009, Oslo Spektrum was the largest indoor arena in the Oslo area.

Together with the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, The Bus terminal, Oslo City, Oslo central station and Posthuset, Oslo Spektrum today forms a city-central hub.

Responsible architects from LPO Arkitektkontor AS were commissioned to design Oslo Spektrum. Great emphasis was placed on decorating the facade and print fragments of Rolf Nesch were to be used to emboss the arena’s outer brick cladding (facade). The work on decorating the facade was carried out in collaboration with visual artist Guttorm Guttormsgaard and ceramist Søren Ubisch. In 2004, Oslo Spektrum Arena received Oslo municipality’s award for good urban architecture.

In December 2005, the foundation Nova Spektrum took over as owner.
