FOLDING SQUARE BY MIA|ESAPExposição CONCRETA 21 a 24 de novembro de 2019
With a wide experience in the formation of architects, the Architecture Course of the Porto Artistic School - ESAP combines a critical-theoretical training with the practice of an architecture teaching strongly supported in the design and execution of activities and projects in collaboration with companies linked to the construction industry for experimentation and the development of strategies and solutions for a sustainable architecture.
The FOLD installation, designed by the MIA | ESAP Team and sponsored by A. BARBOSA, proposes the theme of flexibility through a mobile object as a strategy for a multipurpose use of space and a complementary contribution to the sustainability objectives of the built environment.
The basic constitutive principle is thus dynamic, so that the object is able to adapt to the environment and the user's spatial organization needs. In this perspective, FOLD assumes itself as an architectural metaphor for reflecting and conveying the need to renew interest in the design of mechanisms and architectures that allow a more flexible and sustainable use of space.
