Urban playgrounds for Amadora

"Common Places: Urban Playgrounds for Amadora", exhibition by Plan Común, including contributions by Bruna Canepa, Marcelo Cox, Dyvik Kahlen, Hamed Khosravi, Ciro Miguel, Np2f, Tsubame Architects, Lavinia Scaletti, Tiago Torres Campos and Umwelt. Both exhibition and publication are focused on public space, taking Amadora as an example of a conventional (neglected) city that is the ideal testing ground for new spatial intervention strategies in this type of urban fabric, which reveals the worst aspects of generic development. A collection of micro-public spaces designed by several practices.

This project is part of "The Limits of Landscape" satellite exhibition of Lisbon Architecture Triennale 2016 presented in Casa Roque Gameiro in Amadora, with the support of Future Architecture Platform, the first pan-European platform of architecture museums, festivals and producers, bringing ideas on the future of cities and architecture closer to the wider public.
