Oslo Architecture Triennale 2022 Open Call: Mission Neighbourhood—(Re)forming Communities

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

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. 

Submission deadline: March 18, 2022, 12pm.

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 during the Oslo Architecture Triennale in the fall 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. Submissions that display creativity both in (architectural) form and (cultural/social) content to the benefit of the neighbourhood, are of particular interest.

About the submission 

The Triennale secretariat will make a preliminary selection of submitted projects, that will be assessed by an international jury.  

Jury:
–Giovanna Borasi, Director, Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA)
