If “architecture is a mixture of nostalgia and extreme anticipation” (J. Baudrillard) then the ties with utopia are affirmed and confirmed by the project. In this conceptual context with which we identify, the intervention methodology defended by us lies its referent first in the preliminary diagnosis of buildings that comprise the in-depth study of its characteristics, its history, the materials that compose it, the forms of structural alteration and degradation. We’ll share reflections on interventions in architectural heritage, matter and memory, from three cultural projects in the inland of Portugal.
Rosmaninho + Azevedo is the studio formed in Porto in 2015 by Susana Rosmaninho and Pedro Azevedo. They foster the practice of architecture with additional multi-disciplinary improvements such as museology, in which Susana holds an M.A from the Faculty of Arts – University of Porto. Pedro also took the advanced studies course in architectural heritage at the Faculty of Architecture – University of Porto and is currently a PhD student in architecture at the same faculty. The common factor linking the projects and works is that they are faithful to clear formal concepts, which are complemented by easily comprehensible building strategies. Their work has been published and awarded nationally and internationally.
The GOING PUBLIC program of the Faculty of Architecture is a series of lectures, exhibitions and publications organized throughout the year highlighting certain themes and topics that are important within each of the 4+1 Engagements: Urban Cultures, Mediating Tactics, Craftsmanship, Legacy and the Brussels Way.
