Zaha Hadid Architects and A_Lab Share Designs for Norway's Fornebubanen Metro Line

Zaha Hadid Architects and A_Lab have been announced the winner of a competition to design two new metro stations in Oslo. The stations, Fornebu Senter and Fornbuporten, are to be part of Oslo's new Fornebubanen line, connecting a major existing rail interchange to the Fornebu Senter, a major shopping center in the city.

The Scandinavian city has experienced significant growth in the past 15 years (though has somewhat plateaued in the past two years); the Oslo Municipality is expecting more than 80,000 new residents to settle in the city by 2040.
