The Call Outros Territórios had its deadline closed on February 5.

We are all surprised by the national and international repercussions achieved: there were 297 registrations from 36 countries! We are also enthusiastic about the good quality of the works presented. At the end, 101 proposals were submitted. Out of these, 91 were qualified to be evaluated by the jury.

Other Territories is a suite of ephemeral interventions proposed for a hilly neighborhood in Belo Horizonte: Buritis. The plan envisages an instantaneous transformation of the landscape through the simultaneous occupation of the many stilt systems propping up the hillside buildings.

The array of forgotten spaces, ignored for their unsightly strangeness, will be infused with city life through an event that posits an open field of study: the latent possibilities in the existing city. This will be an opportunity to test new ideas, exchange experiences and awaken sensibilities; a way of showing that modest interventions with limited resources can generate lasting change (whether material or institutional) and become instruments through which to devise alternative solutions for the urban recomposition of such a frayed urban fabric as Belo Horizonte's. Video projections, light art, plays, horticulture, landscape interventions, paintings, objects, ephemeral constructions and extreme sports are just some of the many possible ways these spaces could be occupied.

The interventions will be chosen through a public, international open call for projects and the selected ideas will comprise an exhibition at the left-field venue Viaduto das Artes (Arts Underpass)—Phase I.

Phase II of Other Territories will execute a number of the projects selected during Phase I and organize a free itinerary for visiting the executed works. The idea is to configure a circuit for debate on issues pertaining to the city, explore interfaces between architecture, the visual arts, public lighting and the cityscape, and problematize city management, environmental and architectonic liabilities, urban voids and the real-estate market.

297 registrations and 101 proposals!

The result of the OT Call was a great surprise for all of us who self-initiated this work: almost 300 registrations were received, and 101 proposals were submitted!

Since February 12, all the projects evaluated by the jury are showcased in our Gallery.

The next step is the exhibition design of the show in Viaduto das Artes, whose opening date will be announced soon. All selected proposals and mentions will be part of the exhibit; eventually other entries, too. Soon these teams will be contacted by email.

The second step will be the fundraising for the effective implementation of Phase 2 of the OT project.

We hope to meet all the participants of the Call and all other interested parties (from Buritis neighborhood, from Belo Horizonte, from other cities, from other countries) at the opening at Viaduto as Artes, when we will continue this discussion.

Outros Territorios website

ps


The design of the Other Territories website was done by the designer-programmer-artisan Aline Coutinho. Made in Python, a high-level language that prioritizes the code, the site seems to be (purposely) under construction and its lines leave the organizational structure apparent; the drawing being reworked with user interaction.

Here is Aline's coded, analog-digital CV:

studied architecture* but it was working with design# that she learned programming^>@.
she knits§∆@, crochets§@, embroiders§@, weaves&@, braids§@, makes mistakes, restores@, hacks∑@, cmd+C, cmd+V, cmd+R.

* at FAU-USP
# in quadradão with Andrea Ribeiro e Leandro Lopes
^ learned HTML and CSS from Denis Zanin
> learned Python from Gustavo Ferreira
@ learned on the internet
§ learned from her mother Sandra Coutinho
participated in workshops with Regina Misk and Jessica Costa
& learned how to wave with natural straws from her gradfather Joaquim Brandão
learned from her father José Roberto Araújo
