Neighbourhood - where Alvaro meets Aldo
"Neighbourhood: Where Alvaro meets Aldo" exhibition is reassembled in Porto
at FAUP - Faculty of Architecture, "GALERIA DE EXPOSIÇOÊS" until September 17, 2018.
Curated by Nuno Grande and Roberto Cremascoli.
The third version of Neighbourhood: Where Alvaro meets Aldo presents a new display by COR arquitectos (with Nuno Grande) inside the building of the Faculty of Architecture of Porto (FAUP), designed by Álvaro Siza in the early 90's of the last century.
Here, the meeting between Álvaro (Siza) and Aldo (Rossi) is symbolically represented by the blue colour (L'AZZURRO DEL CIELO) invading the immaculate space of the exhibition hall.
On the curved wall, there are large-format photographs with the "neighbours" of the four neighbourhoods of Siza (Venice, The Hague, Berlin and Porto). On the straight wall, there are videos of the trips to those neighbourhoods.
In the display cases, the relationship between Álvaro and Aldo, other trips, is told.
Four brick pillars support the models of those neighbourhoods in these four cities.
The Faculty of Architecture – University of Porto (FAUP), in partnership with the Directorate-General for the Arts (DGArtes), will welcome from 19 June to 17 September 2018 the exhibition Neighbourhood: Where Alvaro meets Aldo at FAUP Exhibition Gallery, curated by Nuno Grande and Roberto Cremascoli, which represented Portugal at the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale 2016. The opening will occur on 18 June, Monday, at 6pm, at the FAUP Exhibition Gallery. Prior to the opening, the Honorary Medal of the University of Porto will be awarded to Álvaro Siza.
