8. Oslo Opera House

I read about the Oslo Opera House in The New Yorker article, "The Psychology of Space, " about the Snohetta architecture firm.  There was snow on the roof and I had to step over a token warning chain and take careful steps up the slanting white marble roof. 

Nature on nature, snow on stone.  A thrilling visit.  More than any other building I have ever visited, the Oslo Opera House gave me a strong desire to experience the psychology of this space through the seasons of the year.
