About Oslo Urban Arena: The first Oslo Urban Arena was held in downtown Oslo in June 2014 and this September it will grow into a 1000 people event. In addition to an extended conference with world class speakers, public debates, and a large exhibition area, the Arena is all about connecting people across all fields of urban interest. The organization behind the event strongly believes that the city of tomorrow contains the solution to problems of today.

"Hvordan ser et arkitektkontor ut om 10 år? Det er nettverksbasert og består av ca. 15-20 prosjektledere som kan lede radikal nyskapning på områder hvor samfunnet trenger nye løsninger. Vår viktigste rolle blir å se/ivareta helheten og koble/lede spisskompetansen som kan levere løsningen."
