Aker Brygge (Luminosity Masks)

Aker Brygge is a neighbourhood in central Oslo, Norway. Since the 1980s and 1990s it has been a popular area for shopping, dining, and entertainment, as well as a high-end residential area. It was previously an industrial area.

Aker Brygge is located just west of downtown on the westside of Pipervika, an arm of the Oslo Fjord, on the former ship yard of Akers Mekaniske Verksted, which ceased operations in 1982. Prior to the establishment of the shipyard in 1854, the area was known as Holmen. It was then an old yard where some minor industrial activity, and a suburban establishment grew in the early 19th century.

Aker Brygge is served by the Aker Brygge tram station.

Today, about 6,000 people work in Aker Brygge and approximately 900 people have their homes here.

On a different note, Aker Brygge was the scene of an infamous gang-related shoutout 19 August 2006. The shooting happened in bright daylight, with several hundred bystanders, including children and tourists in the line of fire. Fortunately, only two people were wounded and nobody was killed in the incident.
