ABOUT

Coimbra Architecture Summer Atelier is an intensive workshop organized by the Department of Architecture of the University of Coimbra, Portugal. Combining practical and theoretical modules, CASA proposes to investigate the built environment from an architectural, urban and social perspective, taking Coimbra as a contemporary artefact of reflection and intervention.

Engaged in an atelier environment under tutor guidance, students and young professionals are challenged to develop design strategies that address proposed cyclical concept themes. To this syllabus, a theoretical component is added through informal sessions and debates, where concepts, ideas and projects are discussed so as to stimulate the design process.

CASA provides a forum of architectural experiment, active in exchanging ideas, sharing knowledge and promoting a cultural space. Participants will find here a dynamic and interdisciplinary space of interaction with devoted professionals of architectural contemporary practice, as well as renowned academics dedicated to its teaching and research.

Embracing diverse nationalities, cultures and learning processes, CASA intends to cross practices, experiences, generations and ideas, having as its main goal the creation of innovative design proposals for Coimbra.


   
 

MANIFESTO 

CASA

CASA is not just an acronym.

CASA stands for Coimbra Architecture Summer Atelier, but also carries a powerful message and meaning behind four simple letters. In Portuguese, casa means house – or in a more colloquial way and familiar manner – home. This dichotomy is a playful and light-hearted start for the symbolic choice of the definitive name of this unique event.

CASA needs to have an identity itself, and this identity gets its roots from the school, the city – Coimbra – and their intrinsic relationship; a product of the School-City bias. Thus, establishing an international summer event gradually becomes a mutual project, a shared ambition, so as to “open” the Department of Architecture of the University of Coimbra to a collective and heterogeneous community of academics, professionals and students.

CASA also calls for former professors, students, and others currently working in Portugal or abroad, to return to their home, their place of education, memories and moments, and, through a renewed and deeper critical outlook of Coimbra, contribute to the education of students and professionals, by tutoring and lecturing in CASA’s ateliers.

CASA becomes, ultimately, an imprint on Coimbra, acting as a gathering place for everyone interested and passionate about Architecture, Art, Design, Urbanism and related disciplines, in an environment of co-working and reciprocal learning experiences – all working together for a common purpose.

CASA was born as an ATELIER.

CASA 2021 EMERGENCE

    
 

Focusing on a post-pandemic context, ‘Emergence’ is the theme of CASA – Coimbra Architecture Summer Atelier for 2021.CASA brings forth a (re)emergence of the synchrony between creating and dwelling, based on operative design studio strategies regarding Coimbra’s urban territory and its occupations.

The city of Coimbra, in its eminently public dimension, will act as an architectural laboratory, a setting for critical reflection and design, to be undertaken by tutors and participants from different geographies and cultures.

'Matter', 'Structure' and 'Edge' will be the sub-themes developed by the ateliers.

MATTER

      
  'Matter' emerges from the dichotomy established in any urban setting between what is built and tangible or perceptible, versus its opposite, what is void, which means, precisely, the absence of any matter, whether physical or other. In this sense, 'Matter' proposes the physical or identity construction of a specific space or place. Such construction, through its matter, can consist in a more forward approach, through the conception of a design project that fills an urban or territorial void, absent of matter, or in an identitarian approach, in which matter operates at a conversion level, in a preexisting space, absent of function or uses, constructing its identity.

STRUCTURE

     
 

'Structure' emerges as a transformation of one or several ephemeral realities that shape a specific place or context. This theme excludes a merely constructive or material interpretation, as its main premise is to recall the idea of meaning of an architectural object, more profound and rooted, through its relation with the site.

It proposes the conception of a structure as an active response to an object’s apparent  ephemerality, a structure with a physical presence that also embodies meaning. Through its  relation with site and landscape, such object becomes more permanent than any other that lacks these foundations; in this sense, there is an existing structure, between object and place, a middle ground between ephemeral and permanent.

EDGE

     
  'Edge' emerges from the reinterpretation of certain geographic or urban phenomena through  a perspective of transition and how to design, or enhance, these transitions from an existing  boundary. This theme transcends an isolated approach on the boundary itself, be it a river, a  bridge, a coastline, a railway line, a road, building or other. It proposes to reinterpret the boundary as an edge that creates porosity relations between two distinct dimensions of the city, landscape or territory. Therefore, 'Edge' focuses on how to establish thresholds of configurations, each of their own nature, and how to inhabit, design or seam these fragmented portions of territory.
