Workshop day for OAT Academy 2022: "Urban Furniture Hacking for Disobedient Bodies and Behaviors"
The Oslo School of Architecture and Design
Maridalsveien 29, 0175 Oslo
Son and Armelle were invited to write a brief and facilitate a workshop day with a hundred students and faculty members from all over Europe on the theme of social justice, using Gamle Oslo as site. This workshop is part of the week-long experimental academic forum Oslo Architecture Triennale – Academy 2022 “(RE)ACTING / (EN)ACTING – Collective Dissidence: Reclaiming the Neighborhood”. In this exercise, we address the prescriptive and prohibitive urban environment of today with concepts such as of hostile architecture and counter-terror urbanism, and ask students to work collectively to create prototypes of “hacked” urban furniture as future scenarios of inclusive design. A warm thank you to all the participating schools—Sandberg Instituut, KU Leuven, TU Graz, NTNU, AHO, KTH, and Aarhus School of Architecture—and to fellow Safe Space Collective member Paul-Antoine for this wonderful invitation!
