- What can we learn from what has already been done in Hovinbyen and similar areas abroad?
- How must we proceed to ensure that Hovinbyen becomes a sustainable, multifunctional and inclusive urban area?
Hovinbyen is the largest urban transformation in Oslo. In October 2019, planners, architects, entrepreneurs, developers, students, residents and decision makers will gather in an old cable tower in Hovinbyen to discuss urban transformation in fringe areas both in Hovinbyen and other European cities.
In march 2015 the first Hovinby conference, “Reclaiming the Inner City Fringe”, was held. In October 2019, nearly five years later, we organise a second international conference about Hovinbyen. This time we will take a look back and move forward, together.
With exciting locations in Hovinbyen, as the cable tower and Kuben Yrkesarena at Haraldrud, we wish to invite you to two days of debates, workshops, site visits and lectures together with Norwegian and international contributors and participants.
Confirmed international keynote speakers are:
- Peter Barber Architects
- Assemble Studios
- Lendager Group.
- More speakers to be announced!
Save the date now: 14. – 15. October 2019.
Registration and program TBA.
