    Bybransjen og Oslo arkitekturtriennale

The october edition of Bybransjen will happen at Oslo Architecture Triennale's headquarters in the former Edvard Munch museum. In the empty museum building at Tøyen the Triennale has established Oslo Neighbourhood Lab – a temporary laboratory, alternative exhibition room and culture house.

Bybransjen ("The City Branch") is a monthly informal After Work-meeting for professional actors who are a part of the construction – and vitalization – of the city's spaces. Bybranjsen is a cross-disciplinary arena for positive debate, exhange of ideas and activization of the city. Thus Bybransjen moves from plave to plave every time, to be where it happens, experience new places and visit each other.

During this year's Triennale, that is centered around neighbourhoods and lasts from September 22 to October 30, the house will be activized through professional events, social and cultural happenings and exhibitions. Come to Tøyen and the former Edvard Munch museum, and join the neighbourhood conversation! There will also be a chance to see the exhibitions.

Before Bybransjen there will be a relevant professional event about the ground floor of the neighbourhood from 2 PM–5 PM. We will hear from OBOS’ business lab, Flott Gjort's urban community houses, Mustad Eiendom's transformation of Lilleakerbyen from shopping centre to neighbourhood, Natural State's business and cultural development in the Gamlebyen neighbourhood, Stor-Oslo Eiendom's work with Startblokka på Linderud, Sweco/Aspelin Ramm's summer student project the Nieghbourhood Office, and Backscatter's studies of the connection between urban life and digital engagement in Copenhagen.
