Spaces of Learning

Spaces of Learning, Facilitating encountering in the post-pandemic city

What are our future social spaces/things, and how could we cultivate the meetings of otherness in the Oslo Science City (OSC) framework?

OSC is an ongoing large-scale urban development scheme, that aims to establish so-called ‘innovation district’ to the western part Oslo, where the many knowledge intensive institutions are located, and where the characteristic forest-veins (marka) enter the city. The proposed venture is used as a site and as a subject matter for our critical discourse on the role of (urban) public spaces. The general assumption within ‘innovation districts’ is that by providing meeting places and sharing platforms for various actors would enable ‘ecosystems for innovation’. The course addresses this assumption by exploring a more broad and thorough understanding of what multicultural encountering as a form of learning might mean.

The exhibition opening is a public live event including student presentations and open discussion, 26 November at 13.00 – 16.00. Welcome to celebrate the students’ achievements and for a lively dialogue.
