DEBATE REHAB NATION #1 — FAMILY:
Home is the basic unit

 

Home is the basic unit of our living the space around us and how we inhabit and move intoit is the expression of who we are. Social housing especially in Portugal has always been a reaction to an emergency, whether of the people moving from thecountryside to the city, or of the people coming from the colonies. With theoverwhelming numbers of refugees now looking for a new home, and a new identity, what is the meaning and the role of social housing today?

DEBATE REHAB NATION #2 — COMUNITY:
Neighborhood as neighborhood relationship

 

The touristic industry is taking over the centre of the city, pushing the original inhabitants out of their neighborhood due to the rising prices of housing and services. At the sametime, the dynamics generated by tourism is helping rehabilitate our citycenters, and is taking over where the city halls and the original owners couldn’t and or wouldn’t act. What is happeningnow in Lisbon, and how we can learn from other cities’ experience?

DEBATE REHAB NATION #3
SOCIETY: The City as Infrastructure

 

There are territories inside the metropolitan city that have been growing spontaneously and independently, changing use, without proper urban or social planning. The city centers in Europe are now for tourists and what was considered marginal territories inside the metropolitan area are now territories of opportunity for locals. The B-Side of the city is now beginning to be its new energy, generating, art, culture, music, social movements and a new idea of belonging? Which are the dynamics that are bringing new life to the city, and how can we learn from these experiences?

HUMANITY: Territory as Gaia

 

The scientist James Lovelock (author of the Gaia theory) indicates a different developmentof the idea of Sustainability, starting from the premise that it’simpossible to save the earth or predict how it will transform. The only realisticpossibility is for communities to live in climate-controlled and self-regulatingcities, where men eventually will merge with machine to better function. Cancities and their communities really learn from Nature and live organically as abiological entity, and how will the architect’s role change?
