Oslo Architecture Triennale 2019


The transdisciplinary architecture and engineering practice Interrobang will curate the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2019.

The 2019 Chief Curatorial team comprises British architect, engineer and writer Maria Smith; Canadian architect and educator Matthew Dalziel; British critic Phineas Harper; and Norwegian urban researcher and artist Cecilie Sachs Olsen.

The selected curatorial team has led numerous projects based on a shared interest in turning architectural discourse on its head with innovative formats operating at the intersection of architecture, art, politics and performance.

The team is committed to a holistic quest for innovation and new ways of thinking and practicing architecture, which takes form in various initiatives, such as initiating multi award-winning practices like Studio Weave, directing campaigning organisations like the Architecture Foundation, collaborating with and editing international design magazines, working within architectural education and creating participatory art practices to undertake research that challenges conventional approaches to urban planning.

Their proposal was selected from 71 submissions to an open Call for Curator in 2017.
