Waterfront books present the outcomes of EWWUD – European Workshops on Waterfront Urban Design, which have been organized by DAU-ULHT since 2010. EWWUD are international workshops that gather researchers and architecture and urban planning students from several continents in an event for cooperation and sharing of knowledge, and of broad experience and differentiated pedagogical approaches.

This new book, Waterfront Tagus River Gateway, features the outcomes of EWWUD 2017, that gathered professors and students from seven European countries, and the outcomes of Tagus Mouth Joint Studio ULHT-UNSW 2017, that brought to Portugal a large group of students from  University of New South Wales – Sydney, Australia. Both events analysed sites on the Tagus Estuary located on the waterfronts of Almada and Oeiras municipalities, aiming to conceive proposals to mitigate the heightened risk brought by climate change.

This book presentation is part of present EWWUD 2019 event, taking place in Lisbon between the 11th and 22nd March 2019, with the overall theme Waterfront Climate Change – Sustainable Open Solutions, and focusing on the waterfronts at Cascais, Alcochete and Ribeira d’Ilhas. The book will be presented by Professors Pedro Ressano Garcia (DAU-ULHT), Maria Rita Pais (DAU-ULHT) and Karen Lehmann (Ruhr-Universität Bochum).

Architecture and Fire: on London’s Skyline – Lecture by Professor Stamatis Zografos

Professor Stamatis Zografos (U. Suffolk, UCL Bartlett School of Architecture, UK) will give the lecture Architecture and Fire: on London’s Skyline at Room G2.2 on the 31st October, 4 PM.

The lecture will focus on two case studies. Through the first case study I will explain how buildings and the city remember, and specifically how they remember fire. Through the second case study I will demonstrate that the break with the past that Modernism aspired to can also be seen in the historically intimate relationship between architecture and fire.

Dr. Stamatis Zografos is a practicing architect and academic. He is a Lecturer in Architecture at University of Suffolk and a Teaching Fellow in Architectural History  and Theory at UCL Bartlett School of Architecture. He is also the founder of Incandescent Square, an interdisciplinary platform for research and design with interests spanning from architecture and urbanism to critical heritage and curating. His research is interdisciplinary, focusing on the fields of architecture / conservation, psychoanalysis, memory and fire.
