PORTO KNOWLEDGE CENTER 2

The proposal seeks to reinvent the interior of a semi-rural instalment, activating
pedestrian movement and proposing spaces of transition between the public
and private, the collective and the intimate and the city and architecture. It
must be noted that in our time, all the knowledge contained in the centre could
be reduced to a single chip, but we could never store a space that is measured
in m² in time as opposed to m² in space. A space that is a container; a vessel
ready to be experienced and lived in, but also to be invaded with the experience
of another, or of a multitude of others in a time that inevitably allows for life.
Space, emptiness, a stage for interpersonal conscious relationships. A space
delivering dimension, flexibility, circulation, structure, varied relations.
