The Power of Experiment

The Power of Experiment, Rui Pinheiro ©Design Artéria

Nordic architecture has had a recognized influence on Portuguese architects, with Távora, Siza and Hestnes having had first-hand experience of the works of architects such as Aalto, Asplund and Fehn. Despite the distance and differences between them, Nordic and Portuguese architecture share the same lasting tradition – the ability to adapt architecture to its context. Nordic architecture schools are currently focusing on the specificity of local resources and opportunities offered by specific contexts in a series of pioneering master degree programmes that address local issues, whilst geographically broadening the spectrum of discussion towards local and global emerging practice of the profession that is strongly committed to the world in transformation. The Power of Experiment is a challenging re-encounter in the form of a workshop-exhibition-publication.
