Oslo Architecture Triennale
Welcome to the triennale exhibitions at neighbourhood Lab! There are 3 exhibitions on display:
Mission Neighbourhood - (Re)forming communities
The exhibition Mission Neighbourhood: (Re)forming communities is a response to the challenge: how do we form more diverse, more generous, more sustainable neighbourhoods. The exhibition features some 25 projects from around Europe organised around six perspectives: Understanding Places shows different ways to map the cultural dimensions of places. Social Infrastructure explores how to develop sites of community interaction. Our Streets presents new perspectives on mobility and street use. Naturehood displays projects that look at nature on a neighbourhood scale. Reforming systems question the systemic premises for neighbourhood quality. Finally, Artistic practices displays alternative ways of reading and creating places.
Peter Cook - Ideas for Cities
The exhibition Ideas for Cities shows Sir Peter Cook's extraordinary drawings that explore new urban forms, landscapes and emotional connections.
The exhibition is generously supported by Louisiana - Museum of Modern Art.
Oslo in the making
With the exhibition Oslo in the making we ask: What is the state of the neighbourhood in the Norwegian capital in 2022? Oslo in the Making is a report on contemporary urban development in Oslo, with a focus on projects and practices that highlights community and neighbourhood perspectives. As the fastest growing city in the Nordic region for decades Oslo is an interesting and contested example of newer urban development.
A triennale is more than exhibitions
The lab is brought to life through talks, workshops, conferences, local activities, social events, concerts and art projects. Check out the program for events.
The pop-up café “Gamle Munch Kaffebar” is open at Gamle Munch during the Triennale. The café is run by Forandringshuset, a social entrepreneur helping young people. For larger events we collaborate with local restaurant and bar Kampen bistro.
This revitalisation is a collaboration with the City of Oslo’s Property Agency (Oslobygg), the Agency of Cultural Affairs (Kulturetaten), and the district (Bydel Gamle Oslo).
