Polyport. Cultivating Callao

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    A group of six Queen’s year out students, led by Dr Agustina Martire, worked in the international collaborative project POLYPORT organised by RIBA. Polyport involved 14 schools of architecture in the UK and abroad with the aim of to bringing back the spirit of Cedric Price’s Polyark in the 1970s. We worked on a brief provided by University of Lima for the harbour of Callao as a project for the regeneration of deprived areas. The students worked on a very thorough analysis of the site and were in close communication with students in Lima.
    The results of the project were presented in Roma Tre University, with all the other schools involved. All presentations showed a very committed and engaged position towards the sites and very innovative ways of designing and making architecture.
