The forming of neighbourhoods is essential for the future of our cities, according to Christian Pagh, Director and Chief Curator of the Oslo Architecture Triennale.
Pagh dedicated the 2022 Triennale to exploring the neighbourhood as a scale and horizon for rethinking the development and operation of cities. The Triennale team is currently working on a book and manifesto to boost the mission of forming more diverse, generous, and caring neighbourhoods.
On this occasion, Christian Pagh will do a performative reading of the manifesto in a beta version – testing it for the first time with the public! The reading is followed by a round table conversation with three personalities engaged in urban transformation, who are asked to respond to the ideas presented – and discuss how the proposed actions might — or might not — be brought into reality.
Responding to The New Neighbourhood Manifesto are Jesse Shapins, Head of Urban Strategy & Design at NREP, Søren-Emil Schütt, co-founder, head of development and project Til Vægs, and Vesterbro Lokaludvalg's Jørgen Sprogøe Petersen.
The event is a collaboration between Oslo Architecture Triennale and CAFx.
