24 hours

24 Hours, co-curated with Diogo Aguiar, is an exhibition that highlights the amount of specialized architectural information that is launched in the cyber world in just one day, chosen at random, taking as reference some of the most visited architectural sites in the world. Contrasting with the physical dimension of the exhibition space of the Gallery of Architecture, the exposed information immediately raises issues such as: dissemination, quantity, archiving, apprehension, reflection, democratization, opportunity, disciplinary limits, image and consumption. Through the vision of different architects with various practices, the discussion starts about how the cyber world is influencing the architectural practice and the (critical) discourse of architecture.
