Young Portuguese Architects Exhibition at the RIBA Gallery

3 June 2009 – 02 July 2009 Mon-Sat 10.00-17.00 except Tues 10.00- 21.00 Venue: Gallery 1, RIBA Description: Aires Mateus, Bak Gordon, Inês Lobo, João Favila, Paulo David Ricardo Carvalho, Joana Vilhena Focussing on the work of six young Portuguese architects’ studios, this exhibition highlights the breadth of practice in a country which continues to provide such an exciting context for contemporary architecture – particularly appropriate in a year which has seen Álvaro Siza as the recipient of the Royal Gold Medal. The exhibition, consisting of models and drawings, explores the themes of locality, territory, permanence and cultural significance in the work of this cross-section of Portuguese architectural practice, explored through schemes including a high school, art centre, library and hotel. A presentation from Jonathan Sergison of Sergison Bates Architects accompanies the display. Fees: Free admission Contact: RIBA Programmes 020 7580 5533 Organiser: The Portuguese Association of Architects & RIBA Trust
