Oslo Architecture Triennale 2019 will challenge the supremacy of economic growth as the basis of contemporary societies and investigate the architecture of alternatives. We are inviting architects, urban practitioners and citizens to explore the architecture of a new economy in which human and ecological flourishing matter most – The Architecture of Degrowth. 

Through fiction, art, and performance, Oslo Architecture Triennale 2019 will create a stage for imagining alternative societal structures. Here we look to Degrowth, a movement that seeks to move us away from the impossible task of endless growth; not by collapse, but by design. 

Oslo Architecture Triennale (OAT) is a main Nordic architecture festival and one of the world’s prominent arenas for dissemination and discussion of architecture and urbanism. 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 urban planning. 

OAT is held every third autumn in Oslo, over a period of approximately ten weeks. The 7th festival edition will open on 26th September and will run through 24th November 2019.
