Conferences | March 08, 2018—May 27, 2018
Faculty of Architecture – University of Porto (FAUP), Porto, Portugal

The careful attention to the particular circumstances of the context, the concern about cultural rooted features and life itself, as well as the ambition of being universalistic on the approach to disciplinary core themes may be fundamental features within the Portuguese architectural thinking. Drawing on such possible identity characteristics, this international cycle of lectures is devoted to taking the debate on the contemporary international architecture themes further. Aiming at a worldwide perspective on the possible debate between Portuguese thinking and different international views of Architecture, it also proposes a broader approach by gathering together the five continents.
