“Building Stories” exhibition at Centro Cultural de Belem – Garagem Sul

“Building Stories” is an exhibition about what cannot be easily perceived at first glance in architecture: how architecture is produced and built. The exhibition challenges the visitor to perceive life and architecture through the work of the three different architectural practices, showing the similarities that can be found between stories when we speak about architecture.
