As cities become more diverse, the challenge to shape public spaces that are alive, accessible to all and carries a unique local identity, is increasingly more complex. After belonging elsewhere, inhabitants need to find new sense of community. In the context of the first Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016, the Ideal Lab program, took on the theme of "Replanted identity", in the context of the Tøyen neighbourhood in Oslo. Curated by Ralston Bau, five artists and designers each created their propositions that were exhibited at the Deichmanske library. Ralston Bau created a family of urban installations, the Roofs of Tøyen.
