POVERA PAVILION in ALMADA, PORTUGAL by ATELIER JQTS

Saturday, November 21st, 2015

Article source: ATELIER JQTS

Usually a scenography in theater appears as a consequence of a certain text and a certain sequence of actions. Could we conceive it in the opposite direction? Would it be possible to use space as a way of anticipate and contribute the whole action as an outline condition? The scenography, or as we would argue, the Architecture itself, might influence the play and favor for certain actions instead of some others in an informal and none imposed way. Space, text and action could come together in a non hierarchical order and in a close relation and intimacy. Rossi says that “theater has to do with the happening: his beginning, development and conclusion. Without happening there’s no Theater and there’s no Architecture”.

Cinema Ideal in LISBON, Portugal by José Neves

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Article source: José Neves

Cinema Ideal was the first cinema in Portugal. Located in the heart of Lisbon, between Loreto and Horta Seca streets, it occupies the ground floor of two buildings built in two different epochs – 19th and 20th centuries. Since its inauguration in 1904, the cinema was transformed by multiple interventions, becoming a degraded and architecturally disqualified place, showing exclusively pornographic films during the last three decades.

House in Rato, Portugal by CHP Arquitectos

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Article source: CHP Arquitectos

The design consists of the refurbishment and expansion of an existing building in one of Lisbon’s historic neighbourhoods. The vernacular characteristics of the front facade were refurbished and clarified. Inside the design aims to create and free space on each floor, enhancing its size and scale, and creating a dialogue between the front and back facades, enabling light to entre through both directions. All technical aspects inherent to a contemporary family house are resolved through a block at the centre of each floor, liberating the side walls, unveiling both facades.
