agriCultural Mountain Winning Proposal / Group IUT

© Nelson Guarrido

As one of the winners for the international competition, “Performance architecture”, the agriCultural Mountain project by Group IUT (Nuno Miguel Lima Cruz, Bruno Martins Afonso Gomes, António da Silva Lopes) explores the paradox of an ephemeral monument creation. It´s an artificial mountain placed at the city outskirts, outside the dense urban core, at an agricultural area called “Veiga de Creixomil”. Cultural activities are mainly urban happenings. Rural people and rural areas are usually outside the mainstream circuit of the cultural industry. This proposal aims to bring the cultural phenomenon to the agricultural realm.

© Eva Vieira

The Shell.ter pavilion, a temporary installation for the Cerveira Creative Camp, is built from monoblock chairs in the gardens of a natural park in the north of , during a short summer workshop by LIKE Architects. Resembling the most advanced digital formalizations of parametric design, the pavilion is actually set by the association of arches formed by ordinary chairs, which, rather than serving to seat, serve as shadow and backrest and create new frameworks that enhance the surrounding nature.
