Introduction

About the Oslo Architecture Triennale

The Oslo Architecture Triennale (OAT) is the Nordic region’s biggest architecture festival, and one of the world’s important arenas for dissemination and discussion of architectural and urban challenges. Through exhibitions, conferences, debates, publications and events, OAT seeks to challenge the field of architecture and its audiences in local, Nordic and international debate. OAT’s main target groups are professionals, business communities, decision makers and the public across borders, sectors and professions. The OAT is organised every third year in Oslo. The sixth edition of the Oslo Architecture Triennale was held from 8 Sept. to 27 Nov. 2016. The OAT was established by the National Association of Norwegian Architects in 2000. In 2009, the Triennale was further developed into a non-profit organisation comprising six member organisations: the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO), Design and Architecture Norway (DOGA), the National Museum of Architecture, the National Association of Norwegian Architects (NAL), the Oslo Architects' Association (OAF) and Oslo Business Region.

The OAT is funded through membership fees, state and municipal subsidies, public and private funds as well as private companies. Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016, After Belonging: A Triennale In Residence, On Residence and the Ways We Stay in Transit had migration and belonging as its theme. Global circulation of people, information, and goods has destabilized what we understand by residence and challenged our sense of belonging. It has provided greater accessibility to ever-new commodities and further geographies. But, simultaneously, circulation also promotes growing inequalities for large groups, kept in precarious states of transit. After Belonging examined our attachment to places— Where do we belong?—as well as our relation to the objects we own, share, and exchange— How do we manage our belongings? OAT 2016 took place between 8 Sept. and 27 November. The Triennale was curated by the five members of the After Belonging Agency, Lluis Alexandre Casanovas Blanco, Ignacio G. Galan, Carlos Minguez Carrasco, Alejandra Navarrete Llopis and Marina Otero Verzier.

Since 2015, eight associated members have been included: the Planning and Building Services in Oslo, the Association of Consulting Architects in Norway, Bergen School of Architecture (BAS), FutureBuilt, the Norwegian Organization of Interior Architects and Furniture Designers (NIL), the Norwegian Association of Landscape Architects (NLA), the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and ROM for Art & Architecture.

Introduction

Foreword

With last year’s exhibitions, conferences and events, the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016 made its mark on the capital and proved itself on an internastional level. Seldom have so many Norwegian and international professionals been brought together in Oslo to engage in dialogue on issues related to architecture and urban planning. And seldom have the discussions about the thematic and the various formats of the Triennale reached such a high level, both at the numerous arenas in Oslo during the Triennale itself and in diverse forums around the world before, during and after the event.

important for the curators and the OAT Board to not focus solely on the refugee crisis. In a time of a global circular economy, both people and objects are in transit on a massive scale and our entire sense of belonging is at stake.

Seldom have the discussions about the thematic and the various formats of the Triennale reached such a high level, both at the numerous arenas in Oslo during the Triennale itself and in diverse forums around the world before, during and after the event. Since its establishment in 2000, the OAT has developed into an important architectural institution in Norway. The theme of the 2016 edition in particular drew considerable attention to the event. Urban growth in Oslo is largely migration-driven and brings with it various social challenges that should effect how we plan and build in the future. With the theme of the 2016 edition - After Belonging: In Residence, On Residence and The Ways We Stay in Transit – the chief curators looked into our contemporary condition of temporality, a topic that has proven to be more relevant than ever. When, in 2014, the jury reviewed the 73 proposals from around the world, the greatest wave of migration in modern times had only just begun. All the same, it was

The Oslo Architecture Triennale has earned the status as one of the world’s important architectural events. Increasingly, sponsors from both the public and private sector contribute to making the OAT stronger and better, with a secretariat that guarantees professionalism and continuity. The Board’s most important ambition for the future is to learn from the 2016 Triennale and to maintain and further develop its high professional standard that OAT represents.

Introduction

The Mayor of Oslo

Oslo is a city experiencing significant growth and increasing numbers of people choose our city as a place to live, work, study and spend time with friends and loved ones. To ensure that Oslo is a good place to be, we need to build a city where everyone can feel at ease and at home. This requires developing quality housing and residential neighbourhoods, enough space for playgrounds and facilities for children and young people, creating public and office buildings that we can embrace and be proud of, taking proper care of urban nature and, last but not least, becoming a climate and eco-friendly city for the future.

Since 2000, the Oslo Architecture Triennale has brought together leading specialists within the field of architecture. It has raised and discussed important global issues like migration and the environment and explored these issues concretely and locally here in Oslo. The Triennale has become an important meeting place, actively representing and including the business community, research community, decision-makers, urban planners and residents.

This event has given Oslo yet another strong international brand that will attract large numbers of visitors in the future. An engaged population that is concerned about its local environment and city is the best guarantee for urban development tailored to residents, both young and old. The Oslo Architecture Triennale has generated increased knowledge about and involvement in important architectural and urban development issues. This event has given Oslo yet another strong international brand that will attract large numbers of visitors in the future. We congratulate the Oslo Architecture Triennale on a highly successful event in 2016 and look forward to the next Triennale in 2019! Marianne Borgen Mayor

to concrete challenges, such as the integration Dear Reader, of refugees and migrants. This made the Oslo The annual report for the 2016 edition of the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016 a highly diverse and Architecture Triennale highlights yet another complex event. It would be no exaggeration to successful architecture and urban development claim that the Oslo Architecture Triennale is the event in Oslo. The Triennale had an ambitious most important architectural event in the Nordic programme featuring 150 unique events, in region and among the most important in Europe. addition to a very current theme –migration and belonging, which was received warmly by the public and resulted in broad media coverage. The fields of architecture and urban

development contribute to innovation and, when used intelligently, can be an excellent tool in a society undergoing change. Architecture and urban development affect everyone in society and we all interact with the built-up environment on a daily basis. Each of us has a strong opinion on the buildings, public spaces and the man-made landscapes that surround us.

In 2016, the Oslo Architecture Triennale took the risk of venturing beyond the traditional framework of architecture and urban development professions. Architecture and urban development were placed within the context of and in correlation to social science, philosophy, ecology, geography, information technology and even religion. This approach prompted not only positive media coverage, but I believe it contributed to creating a different type of Triennale, one that sparked discussion. Parallel to this, the Triennale included several practical approaches and proposals for solutions

The fields of architecture and urban development contribute to innovation and, when used intelligently, can be an excellent tool in a society undergoing change. They can contribute to making the necessary shift we need on our way towards the future. This requires international arenas like the Oslo Architecture Triennale, a forum that sparks debate, raises difficult questions and contributes to an interdisciplinary exchange of experience and knowledge. Moreover, visitor numbers and media coverage of the Triennale indicate both a need for and interest in forums like the Oslo Architecture Triennale. I look forward to future editions!

Introduction

The Oslo Architecture Triennale in 2016 In a continuously changing world marked by political uncertainty and borders that are increasingly concrete and rigid, it seems to be unavoidable to question how we relate to one another and to our surroundings. The choice of ‘After Belonging’ as the title and theme of the OAT 2016 was bold, but no one could have predicted how relevant this theme would turn out to be. In autumn 2016, it was possible to participate in 150 Triennale events at over 40 locations in Oslo and around the world. All the events contributed to discussing, problematising and exploring the role that architecture can and should play in the complex process of shaping our society. All the events were related to the theme of the Triennale – migration and belonging. By viewing the world through the lens of architecture, After Belonging explored how architects and urban planners can take part in and genuinely influence societal development. What role do architects play today and how do we make the most of our competence? To counter a world undergoing continuous change and becoming increasingly complex, we need to challenge the role of the architect and how architects work. We cannot work in only one direction, using one approach or towards one future. Interdisciplinary work and collaboration should be prioritised.

With the sixth edition of the Triennale, the OAT consolidated its position as one of the world’s most important architectural arenas.

With the sixth edition of the Triennale, the OAT consolidated its position as one of the world’s most important architectural arenas. At the same time, the role of the Triennale continues to develop for Oslo. That is why we are pleased that increasing numbers of actors who contribute to the development of the city now work with us directly. We look forward to developing these partnerships further and continuing to entertain high ambitions for both the OAT and Oslo in the future. Finally, I would like to thank the OAT curators and the Board for having the courage to put such an important and unexplored theme on the architectural agenda. I would also like to thank all participants, partners and supporters, not only in the field of architecture, but also across all related disciplines in the public and private sector, both in Norway and abroad. Without your contributions, there would have been no Triennale. I look forward to the continuation of this journey. Hanna Dencik Petersson Director, Oslo Architecture Triennale

Introduction

After Belonging: Architecture in a Time of Temporality

In 2014, the After Belonging Agency was chosen to curate the sixth edition of the Oslo Architecture Triennale. On the basis of a shared interest in how architecture is affected by the way in which we live our lives, the chief curators developed a concept entitled After Belonging. Here, they share the background for their choice of topic, and what they believe will be the significance of the Triennale for the future of the discipline.

architects to test the role of architecture in these contemporary questions, and until which level the architect can gain agency to intervene in them. What are the architectures defining contemporary forms of being together, and understanding that the question “where do we belong” has not a unique and fixed response. We have studied how architecture operates with and beyond the building. With the help of local and international architects we have shown examples of how architecture can operate as a tool to address responsibly topics and situations that are often oversimplified by the discipline and the profession.

What has your work with the Triennale taught you about architecture’s role in these questions? What we can say is that architecture, although might not be the solution, it is definitely present in these processes. It is our responsibility as

What will be the legacy of After Belonging? Since choosing the topic After Belonging in the Fall of 2014, we have witnessed an increase in the use of the idea of belonging in all directions of the political spectrum, not always with hopeful and positive attitudes, and often associated to the use of populism and nationalism at its worst. Our intention was to localize the discourses around belonging in the discipline of architecture. After us, many more authors and narratives in the field of architecture and design have joined the discussion, with the inclusion of the concept and some of the topics addressed in the Triennale as part of their syllabuses, curatorial statements, magazine editorials, etc. We believe that the Triennale was a beginning of many more discussions, projects, and initiatives to come about how architecture can think of new forms of being together.

OAT — Report 2016

Why did you propose this specific topic for the OAT 2016? We started with the intuition that architecture takes part in most of societies’ current pressing issues, and were interested in discovering its role in questions like migration, tourism, affection, identity, new forms of technology, and so forth. We were unsure of the answer, but believed this moment was timely to interrogate architecture’s relation to stability, property, and identity—ultimately, architecture’s relation to belonging.


Introduction

You had two years prior to the Triennale, to develop the concept and content. How was the platform of the Triennale helpful in your mission? For us it is important to consider After Belonging and the Triennale as a long-term collective research project that results in new forms of thought and action. The Triennale is an opportunity and space to rehears research strategies and test working protocols which offer new forms of engagement for architects with a changing reality. Together with members, programme partners and participants we got to

OAT — Report 2016

develop a six-folded core programme that we believe will continue to live beyond the closing – both through various In Residence projects, seminars and studios in universities and, hopefully, through policy-making.

Report: Core programme

The core OAT programme in 2016 was divided into six categories, each of which was developed by the curators in the After Belonging Agency and carried out in partnership with the member organisations and secretariat of the Triennale. The use of six different platforms and formats made it possible to communicate and discuss the various layers and dimensions of the theme. For the first time, the Triennale had two main exhibitions and the OAT was responsible for organising a major international conference for the first time. Other important firsts were the realization of an international academic forum that brought students from around the world to Oslo during the opening week and the launch of the Triennale’s official publication parallel to the opening of the Triennale. Ambitions were high and, in retrospect, we can conclude with confidence that boundaries were pushed to the limits in terms of both the size and scope of the programme.

The core programme comprised: Two unique yet complementary main exhibitions: On Residence at DOGA and In Residence at The National Museum of Architecture. An international conference with speakers from around the world that dove deeply into the theme of the Triennale from professional fields, both within and beyond architecture. An international academy that brought students and professors from around the world to Oslo to discuss how architecture deals with migration and belonging. The New World Embassy: Rojava: A temporary art installation within Oslo City Hall that was built as an eight-metre high oval-shaped structure and, for two days, housed discussions on democracy, diplomacy and solidarity. The Triennale publication After Belonging: The Objects, Spaces and Territories of the Ways We Stay in Transit, a collection of essays and articles edited by the After Belonging Agency and published by OAT and Lars Müller Publishers.

Report: Extended programme

61 institutions and participants contributed to the extended programme of the Triennale, consisting of 141 events that ran parallel to the core programme. The extended programme was developed by inviting Norwegian and international participants, both within and outside of the Triennale organisation, to contribute content. It entailed sharing knowledge, initiating discussions and sharing experiences across all disciplines, sectors and national borders. The inclusion of institutions from different disciplines - architecture, art, humanities, law, etc. - strengthened the relevance of the Triennale and expanded its reach. The organisers of the extended programme fell into four categories: Member organisations worked closely with the OAT secretariat and curators to produce the core programme. Furthermore, they contributed to lifting and scrutinizing their respective core programmes by producing content for the extended programme, such as guided tours, seminars and workshops.

OAT — Report 2016

The associated members contributed with projects and events compatible with each organization’s own goals and target groups. The associated member organizations are all important players in the Norwegian field of architecture and urban development, and their competence added relevance and depth to the Triennale programme. Through an international call for projects in 2015, the OAT sought relevant, new and existing projects to supplement the extended programme of the Triennale. Twelve projects in different formats were selected. Of these, six were carried out in Oslo, while two took place in other parts of the world. Throughout 2015 and 2016, the OAT worked to establish connections with other programme partners of particular relevance for the 2016 theme. The OAT also assisted its financial partners in organising Triennale-linked events that were relevant for the supporters’ own target groups and goals.

Report: Network The members and associated members of the organisation comprise the foundation of OAT’s professional network in Norway. The Triennale works continuously to expand the network in the Nordic region and globally. The goal is to create value in the form of sharing and strengthening competence across disciplines, sectors and country borders. In 2016, the OAT made the following efforts to strengthen the Triennale network: Nationally In order to continuously strengthen the role of the Triennale, the OAT participated in and initiated regular meetings with national and local politicians and bureaucrats, and worked closely with several architectural firms and property developers in Oslo. In addition, several major Norwegian cultural institutions were invited to contribute to the Triennale programme - major national organizations like the Munch Museum and Opera House on one side, and small, local organizations like ByVerkstedet and Transit Radio on the other. The programme and theme for the OAT 2016 was also presented at various external events: Pecha Kucha Night Oslo, Ministry of Foreign Affairs Cultural Meeting and a Professional Forum at the Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, among others.

(intervention strategies) to the Triennale’s core programme. The financing of these projects was also largely Nordic, with major support received from the Nordic Culture Fund and the Nordic Culture Point. The OAT also worked together with the curators for the Nordic pavilion at the Biennale di Venezia, this time hosted by the Architecture and Design Center in Stockholm, to organise a professional event and presentation of After Belonging at the opening of the pavilion. Globally The OAT expanded its international network considerably in 2016. Never before have so many international participants contributed to the core Programme and never before have so many international sponsors supported the Triennale. To promote the Triennale prior to the opening, the OAT organised four Programme launches in Norway, the U.S., England and Italy. The OAT’s partnership with the Norwegian foreign service missions is an important part of the Triennale’s international work. With the support of several Norwegian embassies and consulates, the Triennale reached an extensive number of people. Many of the foreign service missions also contributed to funding press trips for journalists visiting Oslo to report from the OAT 2016.

Nordic Region Since 2012, the OAT has built up a Nordic network consisting of numerous major architectural institutions. For the first time, several of these contributed specific projects

Report: Communication

The Triennale’s communication work in 2016 focused on increased visibility in Oslo’s urban space and the use of digital and social media to reach an even larger audience in Norway and abroad. Digital communication The website, including its calendar of events, is the Triennale’s most important information platform and the core of all communication during the Triennale. Instagram and Twitter were used to post pictures and statements from the various events. Facebook was primarily used to spread relevant information about the Triennale and its partners, as well as to provide advance information about events. Information about the Triennale from member organisations, partners and the public was coordinated through the hashtags #oslotriennale and #afterbelonging, with #oslotriennale being the most used hashtag on Twitter in Norway during the opening weekend. The digital reach of the Triennale was estimated to be around 100 million globally for all of 2016. Urban space The Triennale was clearly visible in the urban space, as a number of questions associated with the Triennale theme were painted on the sidewalks of the city prior to the opening - the result of a partnership with the Municipality of

OAT — Report 2016

Oslo Agency for the Urban Environment. This visibility was enhanced further with banners on the city’s flagpoles during the opening weekend. The questions and the information about the Triennale were supported by a boosted campaign in social media based on short videos on ‘belonging’. The Triennale’s films on Facebook had a total of 265,000 views and helped increase the number of followers from 4,000 to 7,000. Media The Triennale registered 125 international journalists during the opening weekend. Thanks to a partnership between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Oslo Business Region, Visit Oslo and the OAT, 40 architecture journalists and six travel writers from around the world could enjoy free travel and accommodations. The other journalists paid their own way. A media programme that included a press conference, previews, guided tours to various Oslo-based urban development projects and a speed dating session with 18 Norwegian architectural firms provided material for around 370 articles in Norwegian and international press in 2016. Prior to the Triennale, the OAT entered into a media partnership with the international architecture websites ArchDaily and Architect’s Newspaper. The agreement included exclusive rights to publish news on the Triennale internationally, without infringing on the independence of the media.

information on one side and graphics on the other. The poster for the overall programme, including both the core and extended programme, was distributed as an insert in Arkitektnytt no. 8 and at all Triennale events and exhibitions. A total of 23,000 posters were printed and distributed. New Worlds KORO/URO, which financed New World Embassy: Rojava in Oslo City Hall, produced a catalogue on the work behind the project, as summarised by artist Jonas Staal and the Democratic Self-Administration of Rojava. The book was handed out in the Embassy, together with printed information from OAT.

Room for improvement

OAT reviewed and critically examined the format of the Triennale in development, planning and execution of OAT 2016. Preparation work for the next edition in 2019 will incorporate the experiences and knowledge gained from the 2016 edition. Evaluations carried out together with member organisations, supporters, business and programme partners form the foundation for developing an even better Triennale in the future. To ensure that the Triennale continues to have an impact, the further development of the Triennale will focus on adapting and communicating the programme in a manner that more effectively reaches the target groups, with particular focus on city residents. The core programme of the Triennale was diverse and multifaceted, but its content was, on occastion, too complicated. A complex dissemination caused distancing and was experienced by many to be excluding. The magnitude of the extended programme also posed challenges for clear communication and should be considered reduced in the next edition of the Triennale. Feedback from programme partners show that they would like to be involved in the programme development from an earlier stage. This can

OAT — Report 2016

provide more opportunities for an even better link to the Triennale theme and closer follow-up and support during the implementation phase. The OAT is also encouraged to strengthen its position as a networking arena by creating more meeting places for the various partners in the network. The project with the intervention strategies demanded considerable resources in terms of both time and money. The potential was tremendous, but was not fully achieved. The concept is worth continuing, but must be developed and linked even more effectively to the local situations. In addition, sufficient resources must be made available for continuous project dissemination. The main conference in the Opera House during the opening weekend was one of the highlights of the Triennale, but was challenging to carry out in terms of resources. Collaboration with other parties and similar conferences should therefore be considered. In recent years, the OAT has undergone considerable growth and development. We want to continue experimenting and pushing the envelope of what the Oslo Architecture Triennale can offer to both the profession and the city.

More about the programme

The opening weekend For the first time, the OAT organised an opening weekend in which the public was invited to spend four activity-filled days exploring the Triennale concept in its full width and depth. A total of around 40 events, ranging from openings, guided tours, debates and exhibitions to conferences, receptions and parties, offered a variety of approaches to the Triennale topic. The events of the opening weekend attracted a total of around 13,500 visitors at 18 different arenas. The essence of the opening weekend was the core programme. Exhibitions opened, the Triennale book was launched, the main conference was held in the Opera House, the international student forum The Academy kicked off and the art project The Embassy, which took place during the closing weekend, was introduced.

The extended programme of the Triennale was also launched, produced in collaboration with a long list of relevant programme partners, both national and international. The opening weekend was the Triennale’s most important moment for bringing together Norwegian and international institutions and professionals within its network. A record number of participants contributed to the content of the programme. A wide diversity of events enabled them to share experiences, conclusions and thoughts with the public. New relationships were forged and discussions sparked across institutions, disciplines and national borders.

More about the programme

Main exhibitions The main exhibitions are part of the OAT’s core programme. They allow the theme to unfold and create a platform that the rest of the Triennale rest of the Triennale can emerge can emerge from. For the first time, two main exhibitions were produced: On Residence (DOGA) and In Residence (The National Museum – Architecture). Both exhibitions were curated by After Belonging Agency. Each exhibition had its own parallel programme featuring guided tours, seminars and conversations that introduced different participants and aimed to create reflection and discussion on the themes and projects in the exhibitions.

On Residence at DOGA demonstrated how different forms and scales of migration impact on processes that make up society today and challenge our sense of belonging. The exhibition asked questions about what the role of the architect can be and ought to be in these processes. It comprised 33 installations existing projects and commissions - from artists, architects, interaction designers, researchers and professionals from a range of disciplines from 23 countries. The exhibition floated from the ceiling in the main hall at DOGA, and was structured around five different areas: Technologies of a Life in Transit, Furnishing After Belonging, Markets and Territories of the Global Home, Borders Elsewhere, and Sheltering Temporariness.

In Residence at The National Museum – Architecture was based on ten places selected from around the world to demonstrate how our sense of belonging is in a state of transformation. These locations were presented through texts and images, together with a commissioned report – in the form of a film, installation or something else – from selected local artists, researchers or architects. The exhibition also showed five projects (intervention strategies) as specific examples of how architects can innovatively help to solve challenges related to migration and belonging.

More about the programme

The Intervention strategies Through an international call for intervention strategies issued one year prior to the Triennale, architects and other professionals were invited to intervene in five different Nordic locations. These places represented situations where belonging is changing in different ways. The projects that were selected took the theme of the Triennale into real life, engaged local audiences in each location and functioned during the course of the year as tools for testing ideas and new ways of working. In 2017, several of the projects are still relevant, either as they are being used by the local community, or as discussions and new processes that are continuing to shape development in the location in question.

The five Nordic locations were: A transit reception centre in Torshov, Oslo Oslo Airport, Gardermoen The border area in Kirkenes, between Norway and Russia An Airbnb apartment in Copenhagen The district of Tensta outside of Stockholm

OAT — Report 2016

An international jury selected the five winning projects from 124 submissions. Two were selected for the transit reception in Torshov, while no winner was selected for Tensta.

More about the programme

Education and research An international forum was organised that invited students from around the world to Oslo to take part in studies of and discussions on the Triennale theme. “The Academy” brought together 124 students - 14 educational institutions from four continents - during the first week of the Triennale. The forum, a collaboration between the Triennale curators and the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO), was part of the Triennale core programme. The students were based in the now-closed Stenersen Museum and participated in a week-long programme consisting of excursions,

guided tours, lectures, workshops and independent work sessions that concluded in an exhibition. With the Oslo neighbourhoods of Tøyen and Grønland as the point of departure, the goal was to study the ways in which people live in and belong within a reality of continuous change as a result of gentrification, new needs, housing politics, ownership structures, and other factors. AHO and OAT intend to continue the project in future Triennales. The goal is to create a longterm academic exchange and set the agenda for the future of architectural education at universities around the world.

The participating institutions included: Architectural Associaiton School of Architecture (AA), London; School of Architecture and Design (SADE) – Ardhi University, Dar es Salaam; Bergen School of Architecture (BAS), Norway; CLUSTER – Cairo Lab for Urban Studies, Training and Environmental Research, Egypt; École d’architecture de la ville & des territoires à Marne-la-Vallée, France; Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia (IUAV), Italy; KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden; The Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building at University of Technology Sydney (UtS), Australia; The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), China; Oslo National Academy of the Arts KHiO), Norway; The Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO), Norge; School of Architecture, Urban Planning and Construction Engineering, Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI), Italy; Architectural Construction Department, Universidad de Alicante, Spain; Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at University of Ghent, Belgium.

More about the programme

The Oslo region in focus Every three years, the OAT gives Oslo the opportunity to pause and highlight ideas, trends and solutions that characterise the times and development of the city. Oslo is the host city and arena for the various Triennale events. By also using the city as a case, a recurring topic throughout major components of the programme, themes with global relevance can be tested in relation to concrete, highly local situations within the city. This enables the Triennale to spark discussions about and act as a tool for Oslo and those involved in the shaping of the city.

works continuously on the organisation, further development and improvement of the Triennale. The associated membership of the Planning and Building Services for the Municipality of Oslo since 2015 has also given OAT a closer professional link to its host city.

The many years of support from the Municipality of Oslo has been essential for the development of the Triennale, especially by enabling the establishment of a secretariat that

In 2016, this close partnership was marked by both the kick-off and closing of the Triennale at the Oslo City Hall. During the opening weekend, the Triennale’s international guests were welcomed to the city by Mayor Marianne Borgen and the art installation New World Embassy: Rojava was built in the banquet hall during the closing weekend. Everything that took place over the course of the 80 days in-between has highlighted Oslo in the international architectural discourse.

Historier om tilhørighet til Oslo Utstillingen Perspektiver fra Oslo koblet statistikk for innflyttingsmønstre til hovedstaden med seks enkeltmenneskers beretninger om migrasjon og tilhørighet. Gjennom subjektive og objektive kart, intervjuer på film, tekst og bilder tegnet prosjektet et nytt bilde av tilhørighet i Oslo. Arrangør: Oslo arkitektforening (OAF).

Oslo bys arkitekturpris OAT og Oslo bys arkitekturpris har sammenfallende mål om å stimulere til økt interesse for arkitektur og byutvikling i Oslo. For andre gang var arkitekturprisen – med utstilling, fagseminar og kåring – en del av triennalens utvidede Programme. Vinner av prisen for 2016 ble Ullevål tårn / CODE Arkitektur, Dronninga Landskap, Solon Eiendom og Stolt Utvikling AS. Arrangør: Plan- og bygningsetaten, Oslo kommune.

Tilhørighet og integrering i fylkeskommunen Kan kommunenes planprosesser tilpasses for å i større grad inkludere og engasjere befolkningen, og da særlig nyankomne flyktninger og innvandrere? Med utgangspunkt i dette laget Akershus fylkeskommune et seminar som en del av triennalens utvidede Programme. Seminaret samlet forskere, arkitekter og studenter til diskusjon og har ledet til etablering av et nettverk for medvirkning i kommuneplanleggingen. Arrangør: Akershus fylkeskommune med Urban Idé og Kulturseksjonen.

More about the programme

A Triennale for the entire city With a clear presence – in terms of both programme and communication – in public space, the Triennale topic and discussions were distributed throughout the city and to those who live and spend time there. The goal was to increase familiarity with the Triennale and awareness of the significance of architecture among city residents.

models for political representation. In this way, the public was engaged in the unique cultural and political ideals that are taking form in the war-torn region. New World Embassy: Rojava was initiated, developed and organised by Studio Jonas Staal and the Democratic SelfAdministration of Rojava. The project was financed by KORO/URO and over 800 people took part in its discussions and debates.

The highlight of the events in public space during OAT 2016 took place during the closing weekend of the Triennale, with the construction of a stateless embassy for the self-governing Rojava region in northern Syria in Oslo City Hall. An eight-metre high dome provided an arena for discussions and new ideas on stateless

Several other events also aimed to reach the audience in public space, including HERFRA, Footnotes, City of Oslo Architecture Award 2016, a public space media campaign and installations at Oslo Airport.

More about the programme

Private sector collaborations The OAT wishes to collaborate with relevant partners in the private sector. In anticipation of the 2016 edition, long-term partnership agreements with private were entered into for the first time. Barcode was first, signing a two-year general partnership agreement with the Triennale in June 2015. As a result of the agreement, OAT devoted resources to developing Triennale programme in Oslo’s new harbour district, including important culture and urban institutions in the area. As OAT’s general partner, Barcode comprises Oslo S Utvikling, DNB Næringseiendom, Braathen Eiendom and KLP Næringseiendom.

The OAT’s main partners were DARK Arkitekter and KLUGE Advokater, which also developed content for the programme and helped the Triennale reach an even larger audience. Aspelin Ramm became a partner in 2016, with the desire to increase the Triennale’s focus aimed at children and young people. This support resulted in guided tours for families of the main exhibitions and a collaboration with Elvebakken high school. All collaboration agreements with OAT are adapted to each individual partner and its specific needs. A long list of other private parties also supported the Triennale with funding or in-kind services. See oslotriennale.no for a complete list.

Network and professional events All OAT’s partners become a part of the Triennale’s extensive professional network. They are invited to events and, where relevant, to make their expertise available as part of the programme. Several of the Triennale partners used their affiliation with OAT to profile themselves to their own target groups, whether customers, employees or other professional partners, and received assistance from the secretariat to develop relevant events that also became part of the Triennale’s extended programme.

OAT — Report 2016


Oslo Architecture Triennale (OAT) is the Nordic region’s biggest architecture festival, and one of the world’s important arenas for dissemination and discussion of architectural and urban challenges. Through exhibitions, conferences, debates, competitions, publications and events, OAT seeks to challenge the field of architecture and engage its audiences in local, Nordic and international debate. OAT’s main target groups are professionals, business communities, decision makers and the public across borders, sectors and professions. The sixth edition of the Triennale took place between 8 September and 27 November.

Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016, After Belonging: A Triennale In Residence, On Residence and the Ways We Stay in Transit had migration and belonging as its theme. Global circulation of people, information, and goods has destabilized what we understand by residence and challenged our sense of belonging. It has provided greater accessibility to ever-new commodities and further geographies. But, simultaneously, circulation also promotes growing inequalities for large groups, kept in precarious states of transit. After Belonging examined our attachment to places— Where do we belong?—as well as our relation to the objects we own, share, and exchange— How do we manage our belongings?
