From Imagined Space to Concrete Space | FAUP @ Concreta 2015

 FAUP's participation in Concreta 2015, coordinated by Professors Ana Neiva and José Cabral Dias, included an exhibition featuring a selection of works by students, the design of a pavilion and a square, and a cycle of short conversations by students Damião Castro, Rute Castro, Manuel Carvalho, João Nascimento, Marta Gayoso, moderated by Professor Luís Urbano.
FAUP's installations invites the visitor to get in touch with the experimental and practical teaching project of this School. Through two installations, it is necessary to move between the spaces imagined by students and the concrete space, in its double complexity, between interior and exterior. As a metaphor of the values to which Architecture must respond, this space condenses the principles of this School's pedagogical project, when placed at the service of people: thus offering the possibility of stopping or resting inside the fair.
