Camilo Rebelo, 40, portuguese architect co-author of one of the biggest Paleolithic Museums in the world, came to DC to give a Lecture on architecture to a class of palestinian architects to-be. Camilo Rebelo brought photos and drawings of the CÃ´a Museum, built in an immense and amazing landscape in Douro, in a region considered twice as Human Patrimony by UNESCO.
The DC room in Lisbon was full of architecture students and teachers from OPorto School (the Architecture School of Siza Vieira and Souto Moura, both Pritzker Price) who came to Lisbon for this lecture and a guided visit through FundaÃ§Ã£o Gulbenkian (where DC room is). This lecture has been a successful one and none of the palestinian students wanted to end the meeting. On the contrary, they kept asking questions and sharing experiences.
In the end of this session Camilo Rebelo and the palestinian students challenged each others to think how they can co-create a project and promised to keep in touch. During the session many other projects have been discussed and here is the link to Camilo Rebelo’s site, where these projects may be seen with more detail: www.camilorebelo.com
