Concrete Landscape navigates between two ports, Porto Alegre in Brazil, and Porto in Portugal. Along the banks of the Douro River, Siza meticulously discusses the design of the museum and his emotional connection with Brazil, nurtured by modernism, Brazilian popular music, and novels. It also delves into the boundaries between architecture and nature, accompanied by a visual exploration of renowned works such as Piscinas das Marés, the Architecture University of Porto, and the Nadir Afonso Museum. Meanwhile, on the other side of the ocean, the behind-the-scenes assembly of the Fio de Ariadne exhibition is showcased – an unprecedented display of ceramics and tapestries by Iberê Camargo. It reflects on the musings of collaborators from the Iberê Foundation and contemporary architects regarding the future of this concrete landscape on the banks of the Guaíba River.
