Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal
Pedro Gramaxo is a Portuguese artist exploring the dichotomy between the natural and the artificial creating large-scale installations that contrast with our every day sorroundings. Deeply interested in public art and urban intervention, graduated in a masters in architecture in 2011 and has been experimenting in installation projects that explore new contexts for artistic and architectural expression. Since 2012 he has also been exhibiting his work in solo and group shows.

LAND


Artificial territory
LAND is an geometrical and secluded piece of land destined to restore the appreciation and value of the relation between nature and construction, territory and city.

Type of project
  • Site-specific cases

In a time where Lisbon is going threw a late expanding process, we are disorganised, overwhelmed and careless built.
The approach was more conscious, not to propose a future technology or design but to suggest for one to reset and rethink.
"Land" is a only boat access, temporary, 50 sqm "island" built with floating blocks of cork.
A moment to experience pure isolation, stripped of construction and technology. The location will be situated in Tejo, Lisbon's river, a metaphor for being literally outside looking in, analysing and appreciating our city as a built heritage, and underline once more the importance of the respectful relation with nature, in its planning and industrial use of natural resources.
The material used for the project is one of the most iconic architectural used elements in Portugual.
