Oslo Architecture Triennale Open Call


Oslo Architecture Triennale 2022 will take place in September, and the call for neighbourhood projects, practices and perspectives is open until 18 March.

For its 8th edition, Oslo Architecture Triennale invites architects, planners, urban practitioners, academics, artists, activists and others to submit projects, practices and perspectives to contribute to the Triennale mission: creating more sustainable, diverse and thriving neighbourhoods.

Selected submissions will be exhibited in Oslo at the Oslo Architecture Triennalein the autumn 2022, to an international audience of professionals as well as to the broader public. Additionally, a wider selection of projects will become part of the Neighbourhood Index—an international digital index of visionary neighbourhood projects, practices and perspectives—to be displayed online in connection to the Triennale programme. 
The Open Call searches for visionary ideas and examples on how to form better neighbourhoods: What are the practical, architectural, and social features of good neighbourhoods? How can we share more at a neighbourhood scale? How can new urban areas become more diverse and socially and environmentally sustainable? The Call is open to both practical and systemic reflections, small-scale interventions and master plans, as well as physical and social projects.

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 how we form the places that we share. Mission Neighbourhood is an invitation to broaden the collective imagination regarding the spaces of everyday life.
