Happy holidays from Oslo Architecture Triennale

As a warming-up for next year’s festival, to test ideas, research questions and formats related to next year’s Triennale theme the architecture of degrowth, we invited you to an Autumn programme. Many thanks to everyone that joined us in the exploration. The programme consisted of audio walks during Arendalsuka, the Turnocats debate during the Oslo Urban Arena, the essay series in collaboration with e-flux Architecture, Peter Buchanan’s lecture at the Oslo Architectural Association (OAF), the workshop at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO), Peispraten on the role of architecture exhibitions at OAF, and the book launch of the student course publication Being Tectonic at AHO.

And there is more to the programme. As early as 10 January, one of the OAT 2019 curators, Maria Smith, will talk about degrowth at DOGA’s yearly conference. On 25 January, the Planning 2052 conference in London asks What will urban planning be like in 2052? And on 7 February, e-flux Architecture and Oslo Architecture Triennale host the seminar Overgrowth Talks in relation to the e-flux essay series at AHO. Read more about the programme for the new year below.

This year’s Christmas present for us is undoubtedly the overwhelming interest in the Open Call to next year’s exhibition at the National Museum – Architecture. We received more than 400 submissions from around the world. Thanks to all of you who shared your project ideas with us!

We wish you all a Happy Holiday and hope to see you for more exploration of architecture, economics, climate change and degrowth in the New Year! God jul!

Warm greetings,
OAT Team
