DEBATES | In Conflict: Trienal de Arquitectura de Lisboa | FREE

Housing. It’s a cause of debate, here in Lisbon, and pretty much anywhere you go, for thousands of years now…
Here’s how the organizers of this series of architecutral debates, in particular, describe their main theme:
“This is a moment of an unprecedented challenge. With the certainty of a new economic crisis haunting this decade, the public housing policy becomes a national emergency. While the housing problem grows, new strategies and public funds are being drafted to tackle it. It is crucial to ensure their proper implementation, avoiding errors from the past, and fostering flexible solutions, adapted to the territory’s contradictory mosaic. It is a long-known challenge, but there isn’t still a silver bullet. This is the brief for the Public Housing – No Silver Bullet debate, a prospective view to complement the historical and critical data on display at the In Conflict exhibition, the Portuguese Pavilion at the Biennale Architettura. This event brings together five participants. Two architects will drive the discussion, by questioning (and provoking) three experts in different fields – geography, sociology and politics – in order to outline driven principals for an imperative new national public housing approach.”
