On Residence is one of the two parts of the Triennale. It dissects the architectures entangled in the contemporary reconfiguration of belonging, documenting the ways in which these architectures redefine residence, and the spatial, aesthetic, technical, and sociopolitical implications of this redefinition. This investigation is pursued through an accumulation of evidence unveiling the multiple scales and media involved in these architectures, including documents, objects, projects, and built interventions. It will consider, for example, the relation of architecture to current pressing questions like refugeeism, migration and homelessness; new mediated forms of domesticity and foreignness; environmental displacements; tourism and the contemporary technologies and economies of sharing, among others.

On Residence is structured around five areas: Technologies of a Life in Transit, Furnishing After Belonging, Markets and Territories of the Global Home, Borders Elsewhere, and Sheltering Temporariness.

The On Residence program will be explored through the exhibition After Belonging: On Residence at the Norwegian Center for Design and Architecture (DOGA), a conference, and a publication released for the Triennale’s opening.
