About the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2022 and the Nordic Network for Neighbourhood thinking
Oslo Architecture Triennale 2022 spotlights neighbourhood as a place and horizon for rethinking our cities. With the working title Mission Neighbourhood – (Re)forming communities, the Triennale explores the production of the places we share. Towards the festival in the fall of 2022, the Triennale is an open laboratory for investigations of how to form neighbourhoods of the future as well as the systemic premises of neighbourhood development.

The Triennale has initiated the Nordic Network for Neighbourhood Thinking, bringing together city architects, design institutions, and culture & community actors to strengthen the public sector’s ability to develop more cohesive, socially fair and culturally diverse neighbourhoods. Through a series of partner camps and public symposiums, the ambition is to share practices and approaches to developing more socially sustainable, culturally vibrant and diverse neighbourhoods.
