Made In (Guimaraes/Portugal)

Post Works (Matthew Butcher and Chryssanthi Perpatidou), in collaboration with artist Pablo Bronstein, have just won a competition to design a new washhouse for the city of Guimaraes in Portugal.  The competition formed part of the city's art and architecture programme as European Capital of Culture, 2012.  The design, responding to the 'Made In (Guimaraes/Portugal)' closed-call competition, presents a new, hybrid and satirical take on the washhouse typology commonly seen in northern Portugese towns.  Here are some of the drawings for the competition, and also some installation shots of the exhibition in Guimaraes where the competition designs are currently on display.
