Sines: Seaside Logistics is an exhibition about the relationship between the city of Sines and its industrial and logistic elements.
How can architecture intervene in the mechanical creation of logistic infrastructures? How can we approach issues such as shared uses and the borderline spaces between the city proper and the waterfront in a context dominated by large-scale infrastructures?
Taking such questions as a starting point, the curators propose an exercise that explores the boundaries between poetic transformation and political experience From these questions we placed the exercise in the limit of the poetic transformation and the political experience, based on four main complementary themes: Scale – the importance of scale in the intervention strategy; Limits – the breadth of the waterfront area itself, and artificial and natural mutations; Production – complex and integrated forms of habitability; Time – absorbing the past and integrating the uncertain future.
The exhibition brings together academic projects by students and professors from 14 Portuguese architecture and landscape architecture courses in the context of the Lisbon Triennale Millennium bcp Universities Award. The group of 20 projects to be selected by the jury of the competition will be representative of pedagogical choices and methodologies and the interests and positions of the architectural education in Portugal.
The exhibits – models, drawings and videos – are presented in three sections in accordance with a flexible exhibition structure in the rooms of Palácio Sinel de Cordes.
