LAB.PREFAB #03 is the third of a series of Workshops about projects, processes and technologies, applied to architecture organized by MAPA architects. This edition is organized in partnership with Portilame, a pioneering portuguese timber construction company.

O LAB.PREFAB # 03 é o terceiro de uma série de Workshops sobre projetos, processos e tecnologias, aplicados à arquitetura organizada por MAPA arquitetos. Esta edição é organizada em parceria com a Portilame, uma empresa portuguesa pioneira na construção em madeira..


The workshop will develop projectual aproaches to CLT technology through the development of “objects of uncertain uses”.

O Workshop desenvolverá investigações projetuais com a tecnologia CLT através da concepção de ‘objetos de usos incertos.’


All the participants will work on physical models, looking at different possibilities. At the end, a jury will select one of the proposals to be made at full scale, and installed in a public space in the city.

Os participantes irão trabalhar na produção de maquetes exploratórias, gerando uma série de possibilidades. No final do processo, um jurado selecionará uma das propostas que será executada na fábrica de Portilame em tamanho real e instalada em um espaço público da cidade.

Jury







Carlos Castanheira
Over the years he has researched living functions and the use of wood in combination with different materials as a reflection on the interaction between the built and natural worlds.
The awards he has won include the National Timber Architecture Award, several times for different residential projects. In addition to his architecture career, Castaneira holds conferences, sits on competition juries, edits publications and curates exhibitions, such as the Alvaro Siza exhibitions in 2009 and 2012.




Vasco Vieira
Was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 1969. In 1994 after completing his degree in Architecture at the University of the Witwatersrand (WITS) he moved to Portugal.

He was immediately rewarded for the quality of his architecture by being listed as one of the top 10 architects internationally by the Homes Overseas Magazine in 2004. Since then ARQUI + has received a number of awards for their innovative designs.
