DOGA is a driving force behind sustainable value creation through design and architecture. We facilitate collaboration between creative talents and businesses and work to strengthen the role of design and architecture in shaping the Norway of tomorrow.
DOGA is housed in a former industrial building along Akerselva in Oslo, with a history that dates back to 1898. We offer flexible rooms and venues for both large and small design and architecture-related activities.
