Sarmento, J. & Pereira, R. (2019). Appropriations and uses of ruins and empty spaces. Experiences in Guimarães and Vizela

“This publication brings together the work carried out between 2016 and 2019 in 8 ruins and empty spaces located in the cities of Guimarães and Vizela. Framed in the NoVOID project, this study sought to understand the socio-cultural meanings of abandoned urban spaces, their social life (appropriations and uses) and their material and symbolic transformation (re-meaning) through the various performances they support and make part. It is an opportunity to fix the work done and build a file for future memory about temporary disruptions within continually metamorphosed cities.” | More Information
