Urban Rehabilitation Week 2013

Invited by the organization responsible for the Semana da Reabilitação Urbana do Porto 2013, design factory* developed a project of a space found in Baixa do Porto (Praça D. João), which integrated expository zones of brands associated with urban rehabilitation, as well as a small discussion area which dealt with various topics. One of the interventions was under the trusteeship of design factory*, which in turn invited Diogo Aguiar from Like Architects, Luís Sousa from OpoLab, João Cortesão from Academy of Urbanism and Maria Milano from Esad.
The division of the space was inspired by the typical architecture found in Baixa do Porto, having been complemented by tubes covered in construction tape, emitting a message of change in a city whose intention is to be both reactivated and regenerated.
