Architectural and urbanistic operations after the 1998 Lisbon World Exposition

Public Policies Forum Poster Session


The Grand Project research was part of the Public Policies Forum 2019 (Fórum de Políticas Públicas 2019) on 12 and 13 February 2019, at the Parliament and Iscte, presenting the methods and goals of the project.

The poster was an opportunity to disseminate the research project to the scientific community and civil society, within a debate promoted by the institutions and their representatives, subordinated to the theme of the event of this year “Development, decentralization and Local power”. Two main ideas were presented for debate: “Did you know that the urban model tested at Expo 98, served as the basis for the rehabilitation of 22 Portuguese cities under the Polis program?” and “Did you know that the General Plan of Interventions in the Riverfront of Lisbon, launched by the City Hall in 2008, envisages expanding the concept of public space tested in the 3 km of the Parque das Nações, for the 20 km of the riverfront of the capital?”.
