What leads a family to buy or live in a building with modernist architecture? What impact do the characteristics of modernist buildings, such as minimalism, functionality, or the integration of interior and exterior spaces, have on the daily lives of families living in them? What experiences do families associate with their modernist buildings?
Living in a Modernist House is the theme of the second round table, promoted by the Candidature of Faro to become the European Capital of Culture, under the MI.MO.MO.FARO project.
Accessible to the public through the Facebook page @Faro2027, "Living in a Modernist House" will take place on April 29th, at 18:30pm, moderated by Graça Lobo, from the Regional Directorate of Culture of the Algarve and Coordinator of the Regional Programme HArPA - Stories, Art in the Heritage of the Algarve.
This online session will also include the presence of several owners of modernist buildings in Faro who, with their testimonials, will highlight the characteristics of this architectural movement and how they impacted on their experiences in their respective buildings.
The project MI.MOMO.FARO aims to promote public discussion on major themes of Faro's Candidature to become the European Capital of Culture 2027: the city in the digital era, the enhancement of cultural heritage as a legacy for future generations and institutional cooperation in urban regeneration.
