The project includes an exhibition and publication, bringing together architecture firms from 12 major cities that recently experienced economic and political troubles along with vibrant and grassroots calls for protest – such as this summer’s events in Istanbul and São Paulo or the anti-austerity demonstrations in Lisbon and Athens. Exploring both the social and architectural conditions of protest in the light of the current global financial crisis, the architectural offices witnessing the events first-hand provided case studies and proposals for the urban spaces in which political action takes place, a subject often overlooked amidst the media spectacle of protests. The project is noteworthy not only for its ambition and scopebut also for the diversity of proposals and responses, each architecture firm put forth proposals that vary in their levels of realism. Other participants are: Antonas Office (Athens), , studioBasar (Bucharest), Cluster (Cairo), Culturstruction (Dublin), Superpool (Istanbul), Ateliermob (Lisbon), public works with Isaac Marrero-Guillamón (London), Ecosistema Urbano (Madrid), Srdjan Jovanović Weiss / NAO (New York), PioveneFabi with 2A+P/A (Rome), Vapor 324 (São Paulo). The exhibition runs until December 14, Monday through Friday, 11 am–8 pm at Rua dos Douradores 220, 1100 Lisbon. (mb)
