VARIE Lisboa, 2014. - A project for a public market.

Can architecture help spontaneity?
Can architecture learn and follow the amazing and popular ability to produce beauty from the simple?
We dedicate an open room to the Portuguese wisdom.
A free and open room, to absorb the capacity, typical of the inhabitants of Alfama, to spontaneously live and appropriate the public spaces:
a room that will help them in their practice.
Not a drawing of programs, but of opportunities.
Walls are not required:
it needs just air, electricity, water and their ability to adapt the space to always different needs.
