lisbon, 20th-30th july 2011
The international seminar on the trasformation of the monumental area profile of the city, organised by ACMA and held from 20th to 30 th July 2011 in collaboration with the Lisbon city council, will be determined by a series of ongoing projects. These projects are on the areas surrounding the Tower of Belém and the Hieronymites Monastery. Five Lisbon architects and landscapists, involved in these projects, whose studies are the most renowned internationally, have been asked by the seminar organisation body to put forward their idea of a city in five conferences open to the public. They will be presenting projects which have already been completed or simple planning proposals. This initiative aims to contribute towards the creation of an overall picture of thought, both for those participating in the seminar and the technicians, as well as the local administrative body, on the unique opportunity of coordinating the current planning experiences. This would lead to an agreement of a landscape proposal shared by the western profile of the city.
