Barcode After Work: Oslo Harbor

Learn more about the archaeological excavations in Oslo's old harbor area, and hear the story of Oslo Harbor as a multicultural meeting place in constant change.

Hilde Vangstad, archaeologist from Norsk Maritimt Museum, will show findings from the archeological excavations in the Bjørvika area. The lecture will be held in Norwegian.

Over 10 000 people travel to and from Barcode every day. The new district has become a well-established part of Oslo, and is continuously developing.

The Thursday series Barcode After Work is a series of mini seminars that focuses on architecture and urban development with Barcode as a point of departure. Projects in the area will not only be presented, but are used as a case study for discussions relating to the theme of the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016: “After Belonging. A Triennale In Residence, On Residence and the Ways We Stay in Transit.”

What happens in the ground-floor public spaces? What is the workspace of the future? How do people live in the city? What shapes the identity of a place? What is the history of the area?

Barcode After Work takes place at various locations in Barcode – we can see and visit the topics for discussion. Oslo Architecture Triennale invites all with an interest for architecture and urban development, as well as residents and employees in Barcode, to participate for professional and social input after work.

Barcode After Work will be arranged the following dates:

22 September, 17:00-18:00
13 October, 17:00-18:00
3 November, 17:00-18:00
10 November, 17:00-18:00
