Bringing to the forefront the parallels between systematic classification and self-generative form, this workshop addresses the themes of type and strategy in the main exhibition “Economy of Means”. In three days of debate, the Swiss collective F.A.T. moderates conversations with students, professors and practitioners to deconstruct fundamental concepts in architecture,  from their original classical meanings to our contemporary interpretations, under the premise that theory is a tool of economy in architecture. The programme concludes in a session on “The Poetics of Reason”.

Venue: MAAT – Central Tejo, Sala dos Geradores
