OSLO ARCHITECTURE TRIENNALE: It was crowded on the Oslo Architecture Triennale’s sneak opening day on Wednesday afternoon. In the old Munch Museum on Tøyen, architects, organisers, exhibitors, architecture reviewers, international guests and journalists had gathered to see the triennial’s exhibitions and hear the triennial director’s opening remarks.

– This triennial will create a different contact with Oslo. The aim is also to be a more continuous force in the city. Therefore, we have also received invaluable support from new partners, without this support we would not be where we are today, said Christian Pagh, director of the triennial, from a small makeshift stage during the pre-opening.

Grønlikaia presented

In the old Munch Museum, which is now referred to as Gamle Munch, the finishing touches were put on a number of exhibitions at the same time. In the main hall in the middle of the building you will find “Oslo in change”. Among other things, the 16 projects from Grønlikaia, which were recently published by Hav Eiendom in their parallel assignment, for what is called the capital’s next fjord district, are presented here.

– It has been important for us to also connect with the urban production that takes place in those cities. Oslo is growing rapidly and we believe it is important to be aware of this change in the city, said Pagh from the stage.

The exhibition also presents visions for other ready-to-build areas in the city. In this programme, a number of events are also planned where local voices will be heard and listened to: “We aim to praise places and people who make a difference to the neighbourhood, and together discuss what is not working”, it says from the triennial.

Urban forests and geothermal heat

In the exhibition space that encloses the main room, some selected projects from the digital neighborhood index the triennial collected this spring are presented. In addition, other projects are presented that show how neighborhoods can be improved in the future. This is the main exhibition during the triennial and therefore has the same title – “Assignment for neighborhoods – (Re)forms for community”.

Here we find, among other things, contributions from the Danish Effekt, which has worked to increase natural diversity in the Fredriksberg district of Copenhagen. Effekt’s proposal, which won a competition this summer, involves making the streets car-free and replacing three hectares of asphalt with green areas.

Other projects presented are about everything from geothermal heating of neighborhoods (Danish BIG’s Hotspot project) to the Croydon Urban Room project, which invites the population of Croydon, South London in from the street to take an active part in urban planning.

This part of the exhibition is divided into the departments “Reform systems”, “Neighbourhood nature”, “Our street”, “Social infrastructure” and “Spatial understanding”.
