Within 13 days we will conclude the architecture biennale and this exhibition worths to be visited.

Coexistence from Macao with 32,000 registered visitors until now, presented by the Cultural Affairs Bureau of Macao S.A.R. Government of the People’s Republic of China, in cooperation with Architects Association of Macao, covers an overview of the Historic Centre of Macao, a lucrative port of strategic importance in the development of international trade in Chinese territory, which became a Portuguese settlement in the mid-16th century and returned to China in 1999. The “Historic Centre of Macao” is a collection of a series of locations in the old city centre that witness the unique assimilation and coexistence of Chinese and Portuguese cultures. It was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2005, and represents the architectural legacies of the city’s cultural heritage, including monuments, squares, streetscapes, churches and temples.

Through the use of physical installation and digital communication, the exhibition provides the interactive opportunity to review how we can learn from these “old” buildings and the existing urban context of Macao in a “new” way.

The exhibition will be open until the 27th of November in Campo della Tana, opposite to the entrance of the Arsenale.
