Trigger Point: Lisbon

Six speculative guides to Lisbon reimagining the contemporary urban environment by exploring overlooked livelihoods, traces of profound social mutation, and the scars of past, natural disasters, economic crisis and human conflict. These propositional interpretations are the result of innovative collaborations across Art, Architecture, Civil Engineering, Physical and Human Geography and Social Anthropology.
