Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016

‘After Belonging’ addresses and imagines the objects, spaces, and territories of a transforming condition of belonging. Global circulation of people, information, and goods has destabilized what we understand by residence, questioning spatial permanence, property, and identity – a crisis of belonging. These transfers bring greater accessibility to ever-new commodities and further geographies. But, simultaneously, circulation also promotes growing inequalities for large groups, kept in precarious states of transit. After Belonging analyzes the ways in which architecture participates and intervenes in both our attachment to places and collectivities – Where do we belong? – as well as our relation to the objects we produce, own, share, and exchange – How do we manage our belongings?

Oslo Architecture Triennale (OAT) is the Nordic region’s biggest architecture festival, and one of the world’s main arenas for exploration, discussion and dissemination of architectural and urban challenges. The festival offers a ten week long program of events in collaboration with Norwegian and international partners. Through various events and media, OAT seeks to challenge the field of architecture, engage the public and inspire local and international debate. OAT’s six founding member organizations are: Oslo School of Architecture and Design, The National Museum-Architecture, The National Association of Norwegian Architects, The Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture, Oslo Association of Architects y Oslo Business Region.

The Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016 is divided into two parts. After Belonging: On Residence Exhibition documents the spatial conditions that shape our ways of staying in transit and the redefinition of our contemporary spaces of residence. Considering the aesthetic, technical, and sociopolitical implications of this redefinition, the exhibition presents a series of contributions gravitating around five areas: ‘Borders Elsewhere’, ‘Furnishing After Belonging’, ‘Sheltering Temporariness’, ‘Technologies for a Life in Transit’, and ‘Markets and Territories of the Global Home’. After Belonging: In Residence Exhibition is a speculative platform focused on a selection of ten sites around the globe that encapsulate current transformations of belonging. The exhibition presents ten commissioned reports and five intervention strategies — intended as two distinct and related architectural operations to approach those sites — with the ambition to test the capacity of architectural expertise to respond to changing realities.
