Far-out Voices presents a selective insight into the pioneering, counter-cultural origins of what we today call green design. Organized around a series of oral histories (filmed interviews) collected by Caroline Maniaque-Benton in 2002, the exhibition offers a point of entry into the thinking of some of the advocates of “sustainable” planning within the alternative architecture movement of the 1960s and 1970s.

DIY-manuals, photographic documentation, artifacts and ephemera linked to the work of Steve Baer, Mike Reynolds, Jay Baldwin, Graham Stevens and others reveal a legacy of direct action and experimentation driven by a desire for autonomy from the state and its infrastructures.

The National Museum is one of six partners co-producing the Oslo Architecture Triennale. The 2013 triennale, titled Behind the Green door – Architecture and the desire for Sustainability, features an innovative and critical examination of the concept of sustainability in architecture, urban development, and design. The Belgian group Rotor are curators for the main exhibition at DogA (the Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture). For further information, see oslotriennale.no.
