“Neighbourhood. Where Alvaro meets Aldo” at University of Porto

The Faculty of Architecture – University of Porto (FAUP), in partnership with the Directorate-General for the Arts (DGArtes), will welcome from 19 June to 17 September 2018 the exhibition “Neighbourhood: Where Alvaro meets Aldo” at FAUP Exhibition Gallery, curated by Nuno Grande and Roberto Cremascoli, which represented Portugal at the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale 2016.

FAUP will host the third version of an exhibition initially designed for a site-specific format on the island of Giudecca, in Venice; afterwards, it was displayed at CCB’s Garagem Sul, in Lisbon, and now emerges as a moment of assessment after three years of work around this project. In Porto, the contents presented will highlight the research process that resulted in the exhibition and its relevance – the trips with Álvaro Siza, the cities and the neighbourhoods’ residents.
