Film: Having a Cigarette with Alvaro Siza

At the Tel Aviv Museum of Art

On Saturday | 17.3 
At: 11:30 

Born in Portugal in 1933, Álvaro Siza has established himself as one of the most influential architects in the world – particularly when it comes to public housing. He initially wanted to be a sculptor, which was viewed as bohemian and irresponsible, so he began studying architecture. Architecture, he explains, is a luxury for the well-to-do; but for him, modern architecture became greatly influential after World War II, with the reconstruction of Europe. After several successful projects in Portugal, Siza, an expert in his field, traveled to Germany, Italy, and other countries to lead public-construction projects. Siza views architecture as a means of continuity and an art form that passes from generation to generation, with each generation learning from the previous one. This film is a magical hour spent with an intelligent and pleasant man, who always has a cigarette in his hand.

URBACT City Festival 2018 Lisbon

URBACT City Festival 2018 - Save the date!

We are excited to announce that URBACT’s flagship event – the URBACT City Festival – is taking place in Lisbon, on 13-14 September 2018.

Providing solutions to major urban challenges 
How can we make our cities more equal? More welcoming to newcomers? How can we increase the attractiveness of our cities and fight unemployment? Make sure that they are prepared for the climate change and resilient? How can we do all that with less? The questions that the European cities are asking themselves seem to be ever multiplying and the urgency to answer them ever growing. 
This is the backdrop of the third edition of the URBACT City Festival. It will bring you the work done in the past 3 years by 20 networks and more than 210 European cities. It will showcase the results designed and tested by these networks, acting as testbeds for smart and innovative solutions for the questions above and many more. It will also put the major challenges of urban development in a wider context – the urban trends that we are observing in Europe and beyond.

Event experience
Participants will be led through a two-day programme packed with structured exchanges and surprise encounters. They will hear about all the different urban initiatives and projects that will be presented and to exchange with the urban professionals directly responsible for them. 
On-site sessions at Patio da Galé, the main event venue, will be mixed with off-site visits that will allow participants to better understand Lisbon and explore the different aspects of its recent developments.

Who should join? 
Since 2015, the URBACT City Festival has been one of the main European events on the agenda of urban development. We’ve brought together all the people breaking new ground in urban thinking, be it hyper-locally or at the highest policy levels. We are expecting more than 500 people to join us in Lisbon for this event.

So, if you are an urban practitioner, a policymaker or an elected representative at local, regional, national or international level and you have something to say or to share, or you just want to learn, the Festival is designed for you. We are also interested in meeting smaller and mid-sized European cities, giving them the spotlight more often reserved for capital cities.

And a glimpse from past editions
