    Ultimafestivalen supported by the Oslo Architecture Triennale

Organist, composer and improviser Nils Henrik Asheim has put together Organotopia for this year's Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival– a multimedia work that revolves around focal points in Grünerløkka neighborhood : Birkelunden and Paulus church. Together with the architect firm Søstra100, an ever-changing environment is created, with live music, sound installations, projections and pop-up performances.

Urban parks are places of solace, recreation and community fun with a distinct history.

Organotopia explores how the past, present and potential, utopian future can tell us about collective ownership. Is public ownership the same as real, collective ownership?

The Oslo Architecture Triennale is a co-organizer of Organotopia. Søstra100's site analysis and artistic exploration is also presented during the triennial as part of the exhibition "Commissioned neighborhood - (Re)forms for community" at the Gamle Munch Museum.
