“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.

Building Stories is therepresentation of an abstract landscape made up of architectural fragments. Like a permanent construction site, it emphasises the dimensions of the exhibition space as if it was a piece of land or a contemporary industrial ruin where it is easy to imagine the cold smell of fresh cement and the sound of heavy machinery. The intent is to transcend the limits of the museum space and focus on architecture as a discipline. Achievements, turning points or simply notes and desires from architecten de vyldervincktaillieu, Maio and Ricardo Bak Gordon are shown as live expressions of a much larger universe. (more…)

Continuity and crisis share the same space: ancient brick walls are flanked by the anonymous ‘palazzine’ complex of the latest years and among these the everyday madness of the city: ceaseless traffic, tourists blinded by the scorching sun, the pink roman dust settling on monuments. And again: traditions, languages, researches, cultures and avant-gardes, compose a living postcard with an inimitable capacity for self-renewal.  (more…)
