Spaces for Creation: The Provocative City

Spaces for Creation is Site Gallery's series of conversations about urbanism and cultural space. The talks took place in 2019 and 2020 as part of the gallery's City of Ideas programme.

See the Spaces for Creation video below for a conversation with Andreia Garcia, an architect, curator, researcher and consultant of architecture, design and urban scenography. Andreia is a founding member of Portugal-based art and architecture agency Architectural Affairs. She offers her insight into site-specific provocations in cities and large towns.
