Codfish architectures in Portugal and in Norway

Fishing architecture exchange programme funded by EEA Grants will promote encounters between Portuguese and Norwegian scholars working on codfish architectures and seascapes

Expanding on the exhibition Our Land Is the Sea, Centro Cultural de Belém/Garagem Sul organises a debate bridging Portugal’s and Norway’s fishing and built environment cultures. Codfish Architecture is funded by EEA Grants Portugal through the Bilateral Relations Fund and will trace research currently in progress at Universidade do Minho’s School of Architecture, being part of Landscape, Heritage and Territory Laboratory (Lab2PT), and the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. The debate will focus on the thriving ties between marine ecosystems and built environment and will allow us to understand how port cities and territories have changed according to fishing practices, technological processing procedures, and the human impact in marine ecosystems. For this exchange programme, lectures will be hosted in the two countries, and the outcome will be published in a new edition of Cadernos da Garagem.
