Oslo Havnepromenaden

  • Project tools for engagement in public spaces
  • -

Two years after completing the masterplan for Oslo Havnepromenaden, White arkitekter is revisiting the plan by designing and curating a new testbed project. The use of testbeds were introduced as a tool for engagement in designing public spaces. Testbeds begin with a proposal, but require critical analysis, discussion, documentation and revision before they become permanent features in our city.
White arkitekter wants to open a new testbed along Havnepromenaden before summer, and we’re looking for design partners! As part of the critical analysis phase, participants in the OUA are invited to help analyze the project both as a public space along the waterfront and as a tool for engagement in Oslo.

  • Third Space og temporær kunst
  • -

Kunsten i våre felles rom kan og bør bidra med mer enn å være dekor eller forskjønnelse. Den kan diskutere og kommentere samfunnet og virkeligheten, være identitetsskapende, aktivisere og skape interaksjon. Når kunsten er nærværende der folk er, og med vår tids deltakende mediekultur, ligger forholdene til rette for et aktivt, progressivt demokratisk samfunn og et levende byrom. I denne breakouten diskuterer vi nøkkelen til å skape relevante, demokratiske og spennende byrom for fremtiden.

Eriksen Skajaa

  • Deltagende sosial byutvikling - er det mulig?
  • -

Sosial by- og boligutvikling handler om å utvikle en by og et nabolag med utgangspunkt i de ressursene som allerede finnes der. Det kan handle om å gi folk muligheten til å bli boende i et område under utvikling eller å tilrettelegge for nabolagsbyggere som ikke alltid har de samme økonomiske midlene som større bedrifter. Hvordan står det til med muligheten for deltakelse i by og områdeutvikling i Norge? Vi hører fra folk bak interessante initiativer i inn- og utland og spør lokale beslutningstakere hva de tenker å gjøre for å tilrettelegge for deltakende sosial byutvikling.
