Tactile interactions with architecture in Porto.


A focus on the everyday tactile interactions with a wide range of architectural materials offers an unusual perspective on the city of Oporto (Portugal) in this cheerful live-footage, the fifth episode in the “Arquitectura à Moda do Porto” series.

The complete video project - ten episodes started in December 2013 - was conceived and produced by Building Pictures, Filipa Figueira and Tiago Vieira to promote the architecture of the most significant buildings of Oporto in the last 20 years. The videos take the viewers on short and delightful tours of the city to beat of music in order to involve a wider and general public.

In the backdrop of this episode lay famous projects designed by Eduardo Souto de Moura (Casa das Artes, Casa Manoel Oliveira), Paulo Providência (Balneário de S. Nicolau), José Manuel Soares (Planetário do Porto), Álvaro Siza Vieira (Faculdade de Arquitectura da Universidade do Porto, Estação de Metro de S. Bento, Bairro da Bouça), Barbosa & Guimarães (Viela do Anjo), Fernando Távora (Torre dos 24), Arx (Centro de Sangue, Casa da Música), Oma (Casa da Música), Pedra Líquida (Casa do Conto), Balonas & Menano (Passeio dos Clérigos).
