O desenho de uma identidade: Camilo Rebelo - Inês Silva Reis
This dissertation focuses on the drawing view as an essential and indispensable tool for anyprocess of architecture, without invalidating others that exist and that tend to increase with thetechnological advancement. I consider that it exists a devaluation of the drawing the most primarylanguage that we have , which becomes, in my point of view, one of the causes for the autistic waythat architecture seems to be taking, indifferent to the context and circumstance, and looking forthe show.Thus, the drawing is something that I believe in, that can lead us to a return to basics and to theelemental nature of the...

Os espaços de transição no desenho de conjuntos habitacionais - Reflexões sobre uma experiência de estágio na Suíça - Fabiana Pereira Franco
The present dissertation aims to explore the relationship between domestic and public space, namely in terms of multi-family housing. It matters in that sense to understand how the transition compromises, as a ritual of mental and physical transference, the definition of project strategies. To do so, we will address the transition spaces, instruments of passage between the public and private domains, as intermediate devices of the proposed dialogue. An internship in Switzerland allows establishing an approach to housing design, based on the correlation between the project configuration and its circumstance, according to different levels of confrontation. The transmission of the...
Imagens de uma Casa em Espera Construção de um processo de habitação - Adriana Cerqueira Correa
Let#8217;s talk about houses, about the way we build them, the way we live them. Let#8217;s talk about the way we make them living spaces in constant transformation. Let#8217;s talk about everything that builds a house, everything that composes it, everything that is part of it. Therefore, let#8217;s also talk about ourselves, those who build them, those who live in them.Assuming the internal and personal character of this investigation, we leave aside, incially, the inherent subjects of architecture, deviating the protagonism way of the architectural practice. This subjective construction, which finds resemblance in poetry and literature, seeks to portray the...
Viagem a outro oriente por entre lugares de silêncio, um mapa - Ricardo Manuel Coelho Leitão
#8216;Journey to another East#8217; aims to leverage travelling in order to understand architecture, the world and life. We consider that travelling is to wander over the planet while observing it critically, which makes it a potential operational instrument at Architecture#8217;s service.To travel is crucial for the development of a mental map full of images, which#8217;s most valuable and direct sources are those that architecture, when in action, provides to our senses. It is based on this subconscious map, that we explore the themes and the steps taken by some of the travelling masters, in a way to understand their journey...
Betão. Materialidade e expressão arquitectónica. Da observação à experimentação - João Antonio Correia Gomes
The study of the history of concrete exposes an evolution of the construction techniques, furthermore unveiling an instability that traces back to the cultural and social contexts - nameless material used since the Roman Empire, neglected over the Middle Age, lacking shape during the 18th century, 19th century engineers#8217; challenge, celebrated by the architects of the modern movement over the 20th century, essential to our times.This lack of visual definition regarding the expression of concrete is eased by the advent of photography, since it emerges as an important mean of architectural representation. Some concrete projects become symbols of architecture and...
