Lisbon | Under the influence of mass European city tourism and global investment interests, the historically complex public spaces, the built heritage and the social structure of its metropolitan inhabitants are under pressure in Lisbon. Selected urban situations and built typologies of the given urban morphology, grit and structure, which are already at issue in public debates, are investigated multi-perspectival and with respect to the historic heritage and today's interests of local stakeholders. To enrich future developments, new hybrid building typologies are developed and public spaces carefully re-interpreted within the specific tradition of one of the most beautiful cities of Europe.

"In fact, we may infer (...) that a world culture, which would be a mere uniform culture, will be no culture at all. Ours would be a dehumanized humanity."
T. S. Eliot in Notes towards the Definition of Culture (1948)

"The theoretical recognition of the split-space of enunciation may open the way to conceptualising an international culture, based not on the exoticism of multiculturalism or the diversity of cultures, but on the inscription and articulation of culture's hybridity.
It is the in-between space that carries the burden of the meaning of culture, and by exploring this Third Space, we may elude the politics of polarity and emerge as the others of our selves."

Homi K. Bhabha in The Location of Culture (1994)

I

Our academic workshop in Lisbon has contributed to the international Master's A. S. G., making the city our focus. In the three modules held in Lisbon, the theme project derived from the overlaying of time, civilizations and architectures that are part of our city. The academic work carried out between 2011 and 2013 aimed to find a new meaning for public life in the city's historical centre.

The new meaning for public life was found considering the city a complex phenomenon and one whose morphological evolution was slow. The chosen programs are up-to-date and may be found all over the world, in a hotel school, a market or in public space design. All work was carried out using a method proposed by the professors and based on three concepts: Place, Program and Material. Each project aimed to address the individuality of the place and the need to work in architecture as another cultural and social contribution in the city's long time line.

II

If we take on Walter Benjamin's perspective of the city as a "blind desire to come", we may view the crisis in its public space as a consequence of a cultural crossroads. This is made evident in the shift of urban heterogeneous, unpredictable and even freedom events to domesticated spaces, mockery of events that used to be part of public space identity.

Noteworthy is the success of the "shopping centre" typology against slow environmental consolidation of the area around Chiado, designed by Álvaro Siza after the 1988 fire. This operation was triggered exactly because a shopping centre was included. It appears reasonable to say that public urban space has always implied tension between permanence and temporariness. Permanence is linked to monuments, their symbolic and mnemonic meaning and temporariness to environment change, to mutation; it is never only a consequence of a project.

In the city centre, public space qualification cannot and should not be restricted to empty spaces. Buildings, matter must keep up with these changes in the city because they are the cornerstones of urban environment. Otherwise, this public space will become a mere touristic attraction, a mere representation of history. A lifeless space.

According to the Spanish anthropologist Manuel Delgado, modernity has "led to a crisis in the concept of communication but not that of the collective or that of society". Thus, the "hot system" of citizens gives life to the "cold system" of physical structures. The warmth of the "hot system" seems to slowly permeate Lisbon's city centre, where a number of projects already in place or on-going have changed the city's standby atmosphere of the 1970s and 1980s. Today, there are new museums, hotels and more shops because the political perspective of the city has also changed.

III

The projects conducted within the international Master's Programme A. S. G.  aim to work the hot system and the cold system based on specific and operational answers. Our proposal is that projects accept and reinforce the hybridism of Lisbon's architectural culture. Magnificence and concepts in which image dominates reality were also suggested. The issue of the collective overpowering the individual and idea that each place has a specific need were also debated.

Project work starts with analysis and comment of a set of case studies, of which the conceptual extrapolation is allowed for the practical work at hand. The selection includes architectures built in several continents and throughout the 20th and 21st centuries.

Simultaneously, we propose that a paper should be written on "The Meaning of Public in Architecture" based on literature that includes texts by scholars with different backgrounds such as architects, geographers and philosophers. Here we find Giorgio Agamben ("Metropolis"), Andre Corboz ("Le Territoire comme Palimpseste"), Juhani Pallasmaa ("The Eyes of the Skin: Architecture and the Senses") e Álvaro Siza, ("Imagining the evidence").

The project goes through the referred themes and gradually establishes the proposal based on it's overlaying: 01 Place 02 Program 03 Place/ Program 04 Material 05 Place/ Program/Material. Architecture must occur when method, collective debate and individual of student home will meet. Teaching and learning architecture should mean to understand the strength of discourse.

Topic of the Workshop

This project will be developed in the historical part of Lisbon. The city's topography and relation with the river Tagus influenced its foundation and still affects many of the architectural operations in Lisbon today. Since the 1960s, the city centre is at the risk of becoming deserted and having solely one function while, simultaneously, there is growing pressure from tourism on this area. This project aims to contribute critically to a renewal of the city centre, considering tourism as one of its driving forces.

The place chosen for the intervention is topographically framed by platforms. The amount of historical information is also important data for working the place's inherent complexity. The place is closely and loosely linked with other significant spots in urban morphology. Its complexity lies in realizing the different scales from the several points of view. Our approach to the program aims to be exploratory and critical.

"(…) The complexity of the task did not only consist in the amount of historical information and intricate topography, but also in a complicated programme – designing a building which in itself combines a tourism school and a hotel. The main emphasis was on site analysis. It included visual assessment of the qualities of the space at the site as well as analysing the topography. In addition, analysing the urban morphology was significant in developing the project. (…) The aim of the project was to find new typologies of cultural heritage within the urban identity of Lisbon. The existing context and atmosphere played an important role in the design process. The complexity derived from the topography of the plot – significant height differences and surrounding belvederes. In this project it was important to perceive the different scales from several viewpoints, because the location of the building is to greater or less extent connected to other important places in the city's morphology."

Topic of the Workshop

This project will be developed in Lisbon's downtown and consists of a public programme. The city's topography and relation with the river Tagus influenced its foundation and they still affect many of the architectural operations in Lisbon today. Since the 1960s, the city centre is at the risk of becoming deserted and having solely one function while, simultaneously, there is growing pressure from tourism on this area. This project aims to contribute critically to a renewal of the city centre, considering public life and tourism as one of its driving forces.

The place chosen for the intervention is topographically framed by platforms. The amount of historical information is also important data for working the place's inherent complexity. The place is closely and loosely linked with other significant spots in urban morphology. Its complexity lies in realizing the different scales from the several points of view. Our approach to the programme aims to be exploratory and critical.

"To reintroduce the option to create a vivid city centre at the heart of Lisbon is the challenge posed by an almost abandoned site. The surrounding intrigued us with its qualities and characteristics, which are also hidden from the city. The site is complex with three distinct topographical layers facing towards the distant 'mirador'. The strong monumental retaining walls touched us strongly as an architectural element. We pondered upon the question of how to connect this backward site to revitalize the city. We looked for clues and missing links.

A study of the existing site surroundings showed a large concert hall adjacent to the site sharing a common back entry and a theatre just opposite the site, the national theatre five minutes away by foot and a long trail of graffiti art on the blank walls reaching up to the two funicular lines. Fortunately, a dream theatre concert at that time also made us encounter a large group of old and young fans, sitting and standing on the narrow street waiting for the big night.

Just then we felt what the site desired to be! The area needed a gathering place, a place for everyone to create their own events. The site would be open, unbiased and full of potential to embrace any kind of activities. The architecture, surrendering its ego, can accommodate different activities of several kinds. We proposed a multi‐purpose hall, with its glorious informality."

During the six months' elaboration of the Master's Thesis, complex challenges about "Cultural Transfer" have been delved into within six different cumulative research fields across greater Europe. In cooperation with the international professors' team, 19 postgraduate students have been focusing future opportunities of sustainable architecture and urban design in the field of heritage transformation: Three ancient prison plots of the 19th century have been transformed in Tallinn, Lisbon and Cottbus; the touristic territory of Costa del Sol has been investigated as a cultural landscape; neglected urban typologies in Tel Aviv have been analysed and pushed towards new futures. This final research period is conceptualized as 'individual teamwork' in Germany, Estonia, Spain, Israel and Portugal, from both a practical and a theoretical point of view. The final results have been discussed in the European Architecture Dialogue, the final symposium in Berlin.
