Critical Concrete, Porto (Portugal) 2016
Critical Concrete (Independent)
In 2016, in the frame of the Actors of Urban Change programme, Critical Concrete will hold an innovative Architecture Summer School in Porto, centered around sustainable architecture and art in context.
In collaboration with the Junta de Freguesia do Bonfim, students and teachers will rehabilitate houses that will be included in the social housing programme Habitar.
In 2015, Critical Concrete was founded with the ambition of promoting a new model: the refurbishment of abandoned places for social housing and cultural initiatives through summer camp programmes centred around sustainable architecture and art in context.
Thus, the organisation aims to generate a cultural and social space in cohesion with a playground for architectural experimentation.
