(PT) “Atlas de Parede, Imagens de Método” /08 dezembro 2011


Apresentação do livro “Atlas de Parede, Imagens de Método” de Eduardo Souto de Moura – 08 dezembro às 18h00

Finalmente vai ser apresentado o tão esperado livro Eduardo Souto de Moura: Atlas de Parede, Imagens de Método, editado por Pedro Bandeira e André Tavares com textos de Philip Ursprung, Diogo Seixas Lopes, Pedro Bandeira e Eduardo Souto de Moura.
Como é que um arquitecto trabalha? Sabemos que gere um número complexo de solicitações, das exigências peculiares do cliente às limitações geológicas do terreno, passando pelo autoritarismo dos regulamentos e pela subjectividade do mestre-de-obras. O projecto é o lugar onde essa gestão ganha forma documental e a Arquitectura é o saber que permite operar o projecto.
Mas como é que se cartografa esse saber? Como é que ele é composto? Como é que ele se constrói?

Teatro do Frio /October 2011

Teatro do Frio was at CAAA residence from 2nd October until 31st October de 2011.

This group formation is based on the artistic and human need of privileging research in theatrical activity.
It favours the creation of theatre shows through research methods and devising. The result is the production of original texts in which speech comes as a dramaturgical inevitability, tightly related with body and action. It also privileges the intersection between artists from different currents and practices, in search for a larger plurality of the artistic language

During four years the Cruzados lived exhaustion, hunger, deadly diseases and bloody battles on the way to the Holy Land.

Tickets can be picked up from 9.30pm, on the 29th of October, at CAAA. The entrance is free and limited to the room capacity.
