Digital Storytelling at Olhares do Mediterrâneo

Within the 6th edition of the film festival "Olhares do Mediterraneo", we participated in the Masterclass "Digital Storytelling" with Francesca Trianni, video journalist for TIME magazine and director. Taking the opportunity to learn and reflect on the documentary that will be output from the W@ARCH.PT project, we followed the construction of the film Paradise Without People on the lives of two Syrian refugees.

Interview with the architect Helena Roseta

Women are generally absent from the official sources and texts of History. Oral history has been an essential component of collecting and making Women's History. Interviews are a privileged method of the W@ARCH.PT research project because they allow women to speak with their own voice. And we want to listen!

On 23 October 2019 we interviewed Portuguese architect and politician Helena Roseta. She received us kindly in her office of the Lisbon Municipal Assembly during the last days when she served as President of this municipal institution. As part of the research project W@ARCH.PT and BGEWIA, we talked about the academic path, the references and the long and varied professional carreer.

We thank architect Helena for her generosity and availability. We hope to meet soon!

Consultation of the archives of FAULisbon

We dedicated the month of October 2019 to the intense consultation of the archive of the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Lisbon (FAUL). We went back to the most ancient times, from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century, from the period of architecture at the School of Fine Arts. We had very pleasant and stimulating surprises.

We appreciate the support of the FAUL administrative team!
