Practice in citizen participation
António Brito Guterres (Dinâmia’CET –IUL/ ISCTE-IUL) and Sérgio Oliveira (Aga Khan Foundation) Participative process and generative research
Participatory design plays a key role in today’s democratic societies. Over the past decades a wide variety of techniques and tools have been employed in participatory design. From the side of the social sciences, the paradign has been growing. The lecture will present contemporary participatory design processes to approache complex problems and identify future opportunities. This approach is based on the democratic concept of involving people in the decision-making process by allowing them to take design decisions.
1. Acquire basic knoweledge about participatory design.
2. Incorporate contribution from local citizens in design strategies and practice

Sandra Marques Pereira (Dinâmia’CET –IUL/ ISCTE-IUL)
Home and Social Change
The lecture will introduce general concepts addressed at the pre-workshop lecture.
1. Introduction to the historical/societal turning-points in recent Portuguese history: dictatorship; revolution; adhesion to UE; crisis.
2. Characterization of the Lisbon Metropolitan Area (the context of Portela’s Estate) and its evolution: demographic; morphological; sociological.
3. Evolution of housing in Lisbon Metropolitan Area and its sociological implications.
3.1 Point of departure: polarization between bourgeois home and popular home (slums, overcrowding, shared houses, illegal housing).
3.2 Modern Housing: architectural design and social intentions.
3.3 Evolution of private housing sector after the revolution (dwelling program)
A. The mainstream: modern matrix + progressive investment in domestic private space
B. The exception: towards the claim for difference through the investment in the permeability of domestic areas

Energy and construction Materials – Embodied Energy & Carbon
The lecture will be an introduction to life cycle principles which will be presented together with a brief overview of methodologies for life cycle assessment. Embodied energy and carbon emission reduction will be explained as environmental impact indicators. A calculation method for these parameters will be detailed.
1. Acquire basic knoweledge on sustainability, life cycle and architecture
2. Calculate embodied energy and carbon of a construction element

Computacional design (CAD/CAM tools)
The twenty-first century digital revolution brings new challenges to the design process. The digital tools are part of the everyday life of creators in all fields. More and more, innovation in creative processes is the result of computational logics. The advent of new software and tools has boosted new approaches to the process of thinking and doing. Thus, new logics in creative thinking are being applied, such as generative and parametric models, Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) and Building Information Modeling (BIM). The lecture will be complemented with a visit to the VitruviusFablab.
1. Introduction to digital manufacturing processes and the available fabrication technologies
2. Advantages and disadvantages of the CAD/CAM technologies in order to build a customized solution econolocally and socially sustainable.
