Activity Description

This programme comprises a single practical exercise titled ” From Toural to Veiga de Creixomil” with the main goal of proposing intervention alternatives based on a critical reflection about function, image and different appropriations of the contemporary public realm. Firstly, the exercise involves a critical stance in view of the collective space system and, secondly, an exploration of new forms of collective appropriation.

The findings must be formalised in a wider project addressing, among other possible subjects: the relationship between spaces with different characters (urban / rural); the design of space based on the simultaneous view of all the scales present; flexibility, diversity and complementarity as opportunities to be explored; the relationship between spaces with different domains (public / private); and a proposal of specific constructive solutions including, among others, infrastructures and urban furniture.
