After Belonging examines the objects, spaces, and territories of our transforming condition of be- longing. The global circulation of people, information, and goods has destabilized what we under- stand by residence, questioning spatial permanence, property, and identity-a crisis of belonging. Circulation brings greater accessibility to ever-new commodities and further geographies. But, simultaneously, circulation also promotes growing inequalities for large groups who are kept in precarious states of transit. The publication examines both our attachment to places and collectivities as well as our relation to the objects we produce, own, share, and exchange. It analyses the architectures entangled in these definitions through a selection of projects, texts, and case studies. This publication is the result of the work and research leading up to Oslo ArchitectureTriennale 2016.

"With more than 100 texts (and even more individual authors), the book is nothing short of exhaustive. It traverses space and time in a fairly comprehensive way... What emerges from this framework, methodology and body of research is a singular proposition as relevant for its timing as its subject matter." -The Journal of Architecture "For its internationality and treatment of a classic topic updated to 21st century, the curatorial proposal of the Oslo Architecture Triennale presents itself as a succesfully-solved risky, committed and innovative action, opening new research paths." - jury of the FAD Award "The timeliness, and potency, of After Belonging's curatorial theme is captured by the breadth of its scope. The book reveals that issues of inclusion and exclusion, and agency of architecture in both those actions, are strongly felt in extremely diverse places... After Belonging is a potent guidebook of the complexities of identity and community today, and of divergent practices and agendas of conscientious architects working on these issues." -Ann Lui, for The Avery Review
