iscrizione entro il 15.10.14 | consegna 31.10.14

ARCHmedium lancia un concorso per studenti e giovani professionisti finalizzato alla progettazione di un edificio polivalente nell'antico e storico quartiere dell'Alfama a Lisbona.

ARCHmedium has launched a new international architectural competition for students and young architects Lisbon Open Room. Registration is now open.

Context 

Since 2008, the world has been going through a tough financial crisis, which has subsequently translated into a crisis of values. The big recession which originated in the United States specially affected Portugal, were there has been a high-level of unemployment and a lack of opportunities and public investment ever since the bubble burst.

Proposal

ARCHmedium proposes a polyvalent pavilion which allows multiple uses. By doing so, the public investment is reduced and optimised. It is a pavilion open to the citizens, activating the public space of the historical Alfama neighbourhood and articulating good architecture with limited resources. It is a container that aims to react to the magazine- cover-like architecture that has been generated, instead relating to the historical context of the place, the socioeconomic conditions and the moral sustainability of the proposal. It is an architecture of values that seeks its referents in history, in vernacular architecture and in the Portuguese masters.
