Join us for the opening of Generation Proxima: Emerging Environmental Practices in Portuguese Architecture. The exhibition provides an environmentally-oriented overview of emerging architectural practices in Portugal.

Generation Proxima highlights seven firms whose work respond to environmental challenges while engaging with ideas of community, social engagement, and scarcity. Whether by exploring new ecological materials, revising construction methods, using fewer resources, addressing climate justice, or reintroducing nature as a guiding principle, these emergent practitioners point hopefully towards a much-needed environmental shift—one that may return the ethical and aesthetic principles that once put Portuguese architecture on the map. The exhibition builds on Pedro Gadanho’s recently published book, Climax Change! How Architecture Must Transform in the Age of Ecological Emergency, which discusses how the current environmental emergency will impact the practice of architecture.
