Mobile Workshops


 mobil workshops

Lisbon, its topography and urban variety define and determine one of the most iconic cities of Europe. A city with past, present and future, a kaleidoscope of memories and heritages, a crossroads of cultures, knowledge and experiences; a laboratory of plans and glimpses of modernity. The Tagus River, the hills, neighbourhoods, gardens, avenues, alleys, courtyards ..., have their own organisation and unrepeatable morphology, shaping differences in composition, structure and use of the city. Apparently, nothing has changed, but everything is different and, with no apparent order, idiosyncrasies emerge owing to the topology and culture of each location.

These issues stimulate and transport us to the "Mobile Workshops" based on the discovery of the city, running it under different looks and in multiple directions in search of new experiences, learning and ... fun!
