URBAN TRIGGER AGENCY

Urban Trigger Agency (UTA) is an offshoot of the Urban Trigger Group (UTG), an education and research group specialized on project driven, sustainable, value-chain based urban development. UTG is part of Centre for Real Estate and Facilities Management at the Faculty of Architecture and Design, at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). It is also associated with related studies at T.U. Delft in the Netherlands, and UCL in London. UTA is the market oriented, business end of the Urban Trigger activities.

Welcome
to Urban Trigger Agency

The Urban Trigger Group worked at NTNU for more than 15 years with education, education-based research, and innovation, developing methods for how to trigger projects that can drive the synergy of ecological-, social-, and economic sustainability. Urban Trigger Agency turns this competence into practical agency in urban development.

The first years of field work were done in post war Beirut during the 1990's, a city in high intensity transition between urban warfare and project-based reconstruction. We are currently not at war, but the concurrent climate crises, political tensions, and pandemic are charging our built environments with many of the same urgencies and drivers of change. Large political processes and structural changes in national and global economy, not to mention technology, are challenging status quo and powering deep changes. Changes that will have very concrete consequences, but also produce huge open spaces of possibilities on local level.

 

The Urban Trigger thinking synthetizes classical knowledge architecture and competence, in a broad sense. Over the last 25 years this thinking has been developed through teaching and research on urbanism and cognition. We have developed competence in cognitive science, information theory, urban development, visualization, system design, amongst other related fields. All of it with a focus on the human, living, spatial environment.

Core

Visualize the collected data as a map and as a multimedia interactive presentation.

Organize and generate inventory of the regions resources and establish a searchable database.

Collect and organize data on human, financial and natural-based resources in a region or municipality.

WORK PACKAGE 1
Level II

Map the driving forces of change and the potential trigger points with respect to risk and opportunity.

Identify the resources that regional actors base their organizational operations on, and uncover import and export balances on resource use.

Analyze map and database focusing active actors in the region, targeting business operations and their respective vectors.

Level I

Map driving forces of change and potential trigger points with respect to risk and opportunity.

Identify the driving forces behind existing value-chains and resource systems.

How we work

System. Cognition. Value.

Collect, organize, and visualize data on human, financial and natural based resources in a region or municipality.

First principles first: Let data lead the way

Analyze the maps focusing value-chains, key resource systems, and driving forces. 

Analyze the dynamics: Uncover system flow

Target active actors, businesses and organizational operations, and uncover balances on resource use with respect to connected systems at play.

Focus the actors: Understand risk and opportunity

Map driving forces of change, and the potential trigger points. Analyze connections between discoveries and focus on operations and interconnections. Through utilization of urban triggers we design new value systems and/or value chains. Developing generative models for new business, focusing change that lead to increased and sustainable value creation.
