Reducing Boundaries, final event at Metrolab, Brussels
The final event of the EU funded research “Reducing Boundaries” will take place on October 5 at 14h at Metrolab Brussels.
The seminar aims at discussing the main results achieved by the three multidisciplinary groups of investigators from Unilasalle (Brazil), Latitude and Iuav (Venice). Given the focus on the case study of Porto Alegre, speakers from Unilasalle, UFRGS and the VUB will offer an overview on the Brazilian context, whereas the representatives of Latitude and Iuav will present their specific angle, methodology and output. Moreover, the screening of the documentary “Na Bolha” (“The Bubble”, 2016) produced by Latitude on the issue of security and gated communities in Porto Alegre, will bring different voices from the field.
Finally, the event will be concluded by the launch of the book “Reducing Boundaries” (Mimesis, 2017), that collects a series of written and visual essays prodcued by the researchers involved in the investigation.
