What is architecture’s role in the contemporary reconfiguration of belonging? How has this process transformed the notion of residence? What are the spatial, technical, and sociopolitical consequences of this transformation?
This Conference will bring together architects, thinkers, decision-makers, and local experts in order to dissect the architectures entangled in the contemporary reconfiguration of belonging. Among other topics, the conference will address architecture’s relation to current pressing questions such as refugeeism, migration and homelessness; new mediated forms of domesticity and foreignness; environmental displacements; tourism; and the technologies and economies of sharing.
The Conference will be held at the Oslo Opera House on 9. September, 2016.
Conference stage furnished by Norwegian Icons with furniture by Slåke, Tonning & Stryn, Northern Lighting and Magnor.
