research project at dinâmia'cet-Iscte

The study is grounded on the conviction that the effects of this urban laboratory cannot dispense a predominantly analytical and interpretative work, capable of mapping and qualifying the urban, projectual, and technological culture implemented in Portugalin the two decades that followed the Expo98 ventures.
