The next Oslo Architecture Triennale will under the title The Architecture of Degrowth challenge the supremacy of economic growth and investigate the architecture of alternatives. The festival will explore the buildings, spaces and institutions of a new culture in which economic growth is no longer the basis of societies.

The curators Interrobang Architecture and Engineering with Phineas Harper and Cecilie Sachs Olsen have launched this open call inviting architects, urban practitioners, activists, novelists, artists, researchers and citizens to explore the architecture of a new economy in which human and ecological flourishing matter most—the architecture of degrowth.


Oslo Architecture Triennale (OAT) is the Nordic region’s biggest architecture festival and one of the world’s prominent arenas for dissemination and discussion of architectural and urban challenges. Through exhibitions, conferences, debates, competitions, publications and events across different formats and media, OAT seeks to challenge the field of architecture, engage the public and inspire local, Nordic and international debates concerning architecture and urbanism. OAT is a knowledge-driven Triennale, which continuously develops and produces content with relevance that goes beyond the triennale itself. OAT builds networks, engages and inspires debate among professionals, business communities, decision-makers and the public across borders, social layers, sectors and professions. OAT is held every third autumn in Oslo, over a period of approximately ten weeks. The main target groups of OAT include the citizens and users of the city, decision-makers, professionals and international guests.
