    As part of the initiative to save Oslo’s Y block building, three documentaries were screened at Cinemateket Oslo on December 14th 2019. Hammersborg Protecting the Bygone Future by Birgitte Sigmundstad, Bauta by Paul Tunge and Egil Haaskjold Larsen, and Save the Y-block by Støtteaksjon for å bevare Y-blokka.

    The introductory graphics are designed by Saralinn Hembre Singstad of Mandag Studio, using monochrome photographs of Erling Viksjø’s now demolished government building, snippets of a reinterpretation of Pablo Picasso’s facade mural The Fishermen by artist Ane Barstad Solvang, and Frode Helland’s typographic tribute to the architect, a typeface named Viksjø.
