João Sarmento, a CECS researcher, is one of the coordinators of the NoVOID project, a project that theorizes urban ruin and studies the abandoned spaces of cities. The theme served as a motto for the conversation that took place on March 24 at Pecha Kucha Night Lisbon.
NoVOID started in May 2016 with funding from the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology and seeks adaptive strategies that do not understand urban abandonment as a necessarily negative fact. It is an interdisciplinary project, with the participation of geographers, architects and landscape architects.
