Curators of the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016 Conference: Lluís Alexandre Casanovas Blanco, Ignacio González Galán, Carlos Mínguez Carrasco, Alejandra Navarrete Llopis, Marina Otero Verzier
Oslo Opera House
Oslo (Norway) / September 9, 2016
The After Belonging conference brings together architects, thinkers, decision-makers, and local experts in order to dissect the role of the architect in the contemporary reconfiguration of belonging.
The Conference is organized in four sections:
Global Expertise interrogates the role of the architect within current processes of globalization. By addressing economic, ecological, and logistic networks, this first section questions previous understandings of global expertise and practice, and seeks for a new common frame of action and discussion.
Sheltering Temporariness delves into the complexities of architectural action within the loaded social and political contexts in which notions of belonging and shelter are reconfigured. The section addresses contexts either affected by the alleged exceptionality of natural disasters or armed conflicts, or where precariousness has been normalized.
Productions of Locality looks at the practices and representations involved in the construction of identities in global regimes. Distinctive geographies will be addressed both in their instrumentalization for the markets of tourism or as a form of emancipation.
The Digital and the Real Estate analyzes architecture’s mediations within the technological and financial infrastructures supporting new ways of being together, considering both their potentials and challenges.
