With a new contextualization of the territory by the curator, Rui Mendes, this showcase represents an Atlas of architecture for Sines that Lisbon Triennale, in partnership with the Sines City Council, being introduced now to those who inhabit this territory.

Which are the specificity of this southern territory?
Between 1973 and 1986, Sines was carried out its last great transformation by G.A.S. (Gabinete da Área de Sines) convening a wide range of practitioners from complementary disciplines who managed to design and build a huge port and industrial extension, with a new city. In 2016, for the first time, the same territory was the subject of a case study for the main architecture schools of Portugal.

After exhibiting at the Sinel de Cordes Palace for two months under the frame of Lisbon Architecture Triennale (2016), the showcase travels to Sines art Center designed by Francisco and Manuel Mateus (Aires Mateus, 2012).
