The process of change which the Norwegian capital has experienced and the role of the fjord in urbanisation processes was the subject of an international seminar which was held at the faculty of Architecture and Society of the Polytechnic of Milan on 26th May 2010. The subjects addressed are summarised here in papers presented by Dag Tvilde and Marius Grønning. Museums, infrastructures, housing and advanced service industries burst onto the post-industrial scenario of the waterfront: it is a new functional mix designed and chosen by Norwegians to re-launch their capital which wishes to become a new stopping place on the European grand tour. Will the ambitious promises of the programmes be kept? Is it still possible to reconcile development with urban quality and social conquests, through democratic planning and programming procedures which maintain the centrality of the public actor as a protagonist?

Keywords: Deindustrialisation; planning; urban design
