Enough: The Architecture of Degrowth | Oslo Architecture Triennale
Inspired by these transformed venues of Oslo, Enough inhabits their robust existing building fabric and creates new institutions of degrowth: The Library, The Theatre, The Playground, and The Academy. These institutions promote sharing our resources, imagining alternatives, freedom to play, and democratic education; all issues central to transitioning to a future free from the growth imperative.

The Library celebrates sharing, de-commodification, and democratisation of goods and ideas in a welcoming heart of a community.

The Theatre reveals the constructedness of our world that invites participants to question reality and actively explore generating alternatives.

The Playground initiates a deeper game of exploring and listening to the city reclaiming the streets as a site of joyful and thoughtful experimentation.

The Academy offers a platform for discussion and research to battle injustice and extraction

Women in tech facts [pdf]
FEMALE RETENTION: What are the rates of attrition for technical women? According to a study by the Center for Talent Innovation:• Eighty percent of women in SET report “loving their work” (Hewlett, Sherbin, with Dieudonné, Fargnoli, & Fredman, 2014). • Yet 56 percent leave their organizations at the mid-level points (10-20 years) in their careers (Hewlett et al., 2008).As Figure 1.5 illustrates, female attrition is higher in technology than in science and in engineering. In all cases, the quit rate for women is higher than it is for men. In the high tech industry, the quit rate is more than twice as high for women (41 percent) than it is for men (17 percent) (Hewlett et al., 2008).
