The Centro Cultural de Belém, together with Corticeira Amorim, annually invites an architect to design an ephemeral and modular cork architecture during the summer season.


Atelier Bak Gordon responded to this invitation, designing an open-air auditorium that occupies half of the CCB square. The extension of the intervention allows a total sensory immersion in the material/cork, savoring its texture, odor, temperature and, of course, the way in which sounds are propagated or absorbed.


The amphitheater’s smooth slope lends an informality to the space and suggests the memory of southern landscapes.


The vicissitudes of health rules were converted into a spelling where the marking of seats becomes a kind of new language.

O Centro Cultural de Belém, em conjunto com a Corticeira Amorim, convida anualmente um arquitecto para desenhar uma arquitectura efémera e modelar, em cortiça, durante a temporada de Verão. O atelier Bak Gordon respondeu a esse convite, desenhando um auditório ao ar-livre que ocupa metade da praça do CCB. A extensão da intervenção permite uma total imersão sensorial na matéria/cortiça, saboreando a sua textura, o odor, a temperatura e, naturalmente, o modo como os sons se propagam ou absorvem. A pendente suave da plateia, empresta uma informalidade ao espaço e convoca a memória das paisagens do Sul.


As vicissitudes das regras sanitárias foram convertidas numa grafia onde a marcação dos assentos se transforma numa espécie de nova linguagem.
