Porto Academy 'Visiting Versailles will happen from the 6th to the 13th July 2022 and it will be focused on the different scales of the city and its relation with the Planet Earth. Talking about cities and its development reminds us to think not only about growth and production but also about building and the direct impact it has on the social and economic way of living in the world.
Taking Architecture into consideration as a discipline with very different ranges of interventions which go from Buildings to Furniture, and definitely including Landscape, Urbanism, Energy, but also Sociology and Economics. The program will enable for future inquiry and consciousness of the dialogue between City and Earth, 'the architecture of the Anthropocene through the visible and invisible matter’.
