ILUSTRARTE 14, Biennial International Exhibition of Children’s Books Illustration in Lisbon, Portugal by Pedro Cabrito + Isabel Diniz architects

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Article source: Pedro Cabrito + Isabel Diniz architects


For this Ilustrarte 14, we have crossed illustration for children with the playful and creative dimension of the act of playing, in a solution that explores the formal features of the famous colorful toy blocks, timeless in its simplicity and potential for discovery.
It is noteworthy that the first concept model has been literally assembled using a set of blocks bought at a toy store.

These objects remain recognizable and communicative, extracted from the everyday iconography, transforming banal into an exercise that brings us closer to the creative process of illustrating.

CENTER FOR INTERPRETATION OF JEWISH CULTURE in Trancoso, Portugal by Gonçalo Byrne Arquitectos + Oficina Ideias em linha

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: Gonçalo Byrne Arquitectos + Oficina Ideias em linha 


The Interpretation Center was plotted in the dense urban fabric of a medieval fortified village, in an area once referred as the Jewish quarter of Trancoso.

Starting from a ruined allotment, the aim was to re-erect a building that reinforces the corner geometry, still displaying an acute angle on the intersection of two narrow streets, and establishing a symbolic gesture in the context of Jewish urban culture.
