        • A Cozinha da Casa do Vapor


          from Mattia Paco Rizzi Added 699 3 0

          A Cozinha da Casa do Vapor is a collateral project of the Casa do Vapor project, based in Cova do Vapor. [Steam House] is an assemblage of core elements and satellite projects by different people and groups created by members of EXYZT, the Associação de Moradores da Cova and many more. Cova do Vapor is a self-built neighbourhood just outside Lisbon, a fishermen’s village within Lisbon’s Tejo estuary which stands out for its strong sense of community and unique architectural heritage based on a tradition of self-building. The building process of the Cozinha do vapor reflects the Cova do vapor one : Most of the pinewood was previously used by Exyzt for the support structure Construir Juntos (Building Together) which hosted the Curator’s Lab of Guimarães Capital of Culture 2012.This wood was subsequently taken to Cova to be reused in the construction of most of the element. The construction and maintenance of the Steam House was done in close collaboration with the Cova do Vapor Residents Association, which is responsible for coordinating the all the activities and maintenance works of village. We choose Food as a medium. Food, kitchen, is one of the strongest component of « a culture », recognized by the majority of a country's social classes, a universal necessity and right, understandable and shareable by all. As a set of knowledge and custom, it stands for a system of values, social practices and sharing, the all make it up by material and intangible aspects. His development itself is due thanks to exchange and new horizons. Consequently, it reflects the concept and goal of Casa do Vapor. We define our cultural work and social issue by the complementarity of the construction acting and mediation, the material and the intangible side. Part of a temporary project, we aim to produce lasting tools in a sustainable way : Finishing to build the kitchen and his completion, building a wood oven with wood from Guimaresh. Set up a food network against waste in a local scale, providing the kitchen collective meals and boost social cohesion. The approach as a non profit space, isn't obvious for all. Installation involves new uses and it's one of the challenging side of the project : to activate new pratices based on the top of social dimension. The traditionnal scale and dimension also have his bundle of constraints, formalistic rules may standardises the habits maybe more than in big city context. The kitchen also became a place of interaction and education for children : as a closed space rulled by adults they changed behaviours (no fight and insult), get to eat a lot of vegetable and international recipes they aren't use to. Consequently in this contexte, that 's the upstream and downstream work done that allows the efficiency, coherence of the project. It's also enable to legitimate the social intervention in a temporary session. That's the collective dimension. A Cozinha da Casa do Vapor is a projet of Jessica Bergstein-Collay and Mattia Paco Rizzi http://www.casadovapor.org/pt/cozinha-do-vapor/ A Cozinha da Casa do Vapor is part of Crisis Buster Grant of Lisbon Architecture Triennale http://www.close-closer.com/en/programme/crisis-buster Casa do Vapor : http://www.casadovapor.org/ EXYZT: http://www.exyzt.org/ Peace.

            from Landscape Institute Added 103 1 0

            The Dalston Eastern Curve Garden in east London is a thriving community garden, developed on a small piece of derelict railway land by landscape architects J & L Gibbons, with muf art/architecture and Exyzt. The video shows some of the improvements in community health and wellbeing that the garden has brought, providing an oasis in the heart of a busy, noisy, high-density part of the city, where public green space is severely lacking. This is the first in a series of Landscape Institute videos on landscape and health, featuring some of the landscape projects that illustrated the 2013 publication 'Public health and landscape: creating healthy places'.

              from DAMnº magazine Added 77 2 0

              The cockles of one’s heart are warmed when learning of feats carried out against the odds. In the case of the Casa Do Vapor project in Portugal, it is simply a matter of livening up a forlorn neighbourhood for a limited period of time, for the sheer pleasure of all who live and visit there, with only the slightest possibility of the efforts taken to achieve the transformation lasting into the foreseeable future. With its dubious status as a fishermen’s village full of semi legal inhabitants, and with developers now champing at the bit to make golf courses, it is an all together peculiar scenario.

              • The Reunion by Exyzt


                from Cédric Tacussel Added 3,756 26 0

                http://www.exyzt.org/ 4 years after the Southwark Lido in London, EXYZT has re occupied the 100 Union Street with The reUnion Public House. In the spirit of the 1830 Beer Act in which anyone could apply for a licence and open up their front room to the public, to sell – and even brew – beer from their own home. The reUNION, was an illustration of what could be a Public House beyond the idea of a pub’. With the essential support of LAKE ESTATE, who lent us the land and granted the project to be kick out of the ground. EXYZT gathered again this year a broad range of people to deliver a self produced and self managed collective act of architecture and a place open to everyone in the heart of Southwark. Inspired by the playful aspects in the history of the public houses, the reunion was a place where families would meet as the kids could enjoy a paddling pool and games while sipping a south london brewed beer and catch up with neighbours and others. EXYZT and friends have lived on site as hosts and to make sure this public house is hospitable and open for all.
