As you stroll along the Bjørvika shoreline from the Oslo Opera House towards Vippetangen Port, you will find yourself walking under a gigantic fish rack. The Arctic Pyramid is majestic, towering like an open tunnel over the seaside promenade. In the north, the fish rack is used to dry fish. SALT intends to fill it with art, culture and our many visitors.
