Let Y block stay

Just reposting an article from Nytid (New Time) in Norwegian. English speaking friends will have to google translate, or maybe i will do it?

Basically, when Breivik let off his bomb in the government quarter in central Oslo, before drive to Utøya to slaughter kids, he damaged the buildings there so badly that the government are considering tearing them down. There’s the “High block” and the “ Y block”. The augment here’s is that the Y block is a fantastic example of brutalist architecture, and happens to have a Picasso artwork on the most prominent wall.
