Nordic Neighbourhood Camp at DOGA
In the end of March the Triennale's Nordic community came together to discuss neighbourhood questions during two intensive days.
March 30–31 Oslo Architecture Triennale hosted the Nordic Neighbourhood Camp, inviting City Architects and cultural actors from the Nordics together with a local and national community of architects, developers, academics, bureaucrats, politicians and others working with cities and neighbourhoods. The camp, held at Design and Architecture Norway (DOGA), is part of Mission Neighbourhood and the Triennale's ongoing research of the neighbourhood theme building up to this autumn's Triennale, with the aim of contributing to more sustainable, diverse and thriving neighbourhoods.
The camp combined presentations by distinguished speakers with focused workshops, divided into three entrances to the understanding of neighbourhoods: urban governance, urban form, and urban life. Amongst the contributors were Copenhagen's City Architect Camilla van Deurs, Malmö's City Architect Finn Williams, Bergen's City Architect Maria Molden, DOGA-CEO Tor Inge Hjemdal, Vandkunsten Architects and several more actors both from Norway and the Nordics. The results and highlights from the camp were delivered to the politicians at the end of the day, where James Stove Lorentzen (H) and Rasmus Reinvang (MDG) came to receive and respond to the camp work, sharing their reflections on neighbourhoods.
The event was supported by DOGA, Nordic Culture Fund and the Finnish-Norwegian Culture Institute (FINNO).
