Lead image, infobox[edit]

This edit troubles me. I find it obvious that the lead image should be of the whole building, not of a part of one of the towers. Also, some of the information is misleading. The infobox is currently stating: "Client: Norwegian government, Owner: Norwegian Democratic Government". The latter phrase is awkward indeed. The city hall is owned and used by the City of Oslo, and using "Democratic" in this context is just weird. Regards, --Kjetil_r 16:23, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Sorry. I will fix this + and probably upload a new image from Flickr with a better quality, (UTC)

and of course, in the creative commons category. The infobox information youve mentioned was simply a little html misplacement from my side. Hope you keep the article as it is when I have replaced the content just mentioned.

Height[edit]

I've never been to Oslo, but are you sure that this building is 310 metres high???

I found a Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs web page that gives 66 m.

City Hall[edit]

In the description is written that the architecture style is Brutalist or Postmodern. But Postmodern is an idea started in the 1972, and also Brutalist is an architecture style born after the 1936.

This style is really similar to the Italian style in the same period, 1920-1940, we call that Fascist style, without any negative meaning of course. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Daniele1357 (talkcontribs) 21:39, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Language[edit]

The English of this article is atrociously poor. Most, if not necessarily all, of the text appears to have been translated by a translating program, resulting in untranslated words and grossly mistranslated passages. The text should be revised forthwith. --Death Bredon (talk) 18:29, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
