It has been an issue for most ever since ancient Rome, and, most likely, even ever since our earlier, cave-dwelling days. Lisbon is no exception. Em Casa (“At Home”) is the eeringly relevantly titled new architectural exhibit at the CCB’s Garagem Sul (which has recently, like many, reopened its doors), and it addresses questions like:
“What houses do we live in? How do today’s architects design our homes, and how have the notions of housing changed in the time of the last generation?”
“This exhibition explores the questions and answers to these questions. Conceived from the collection of the MAXXI museum in Rome, the exhibition starts from the small scale of the shelter to the large dimension of collective housing, emphasizing complex and hybrid experiences that testify to the new relationship between individuals and communities. In Lisbon, the pairs presented in Rome are complemented with Portuguese examples.”
Em Casa is on view Tuesday through Sunday, 10h to 18h, until Sept. 5 (in theory).
