Nuno PIMENTA

Nuno Pimenta (Porto, 1985) develops a transdisciplinary practice which articulates art and architecture. His works focuses on the appropriation and subversion of common urban elements for the creation of social and political reflection spaces. He has an MA in Architecture from the Faculty of Architecture of Porto University and he currently attends the Master in Art and Design for Public Space at Faculty of Fine Arts, Porto University.

In recent years he has developed several award-winning works in a wide range of artistic fields such as temporary architecture, art installation, public art and performance. Between 2011 and 2012 worked in Paris with Didier Faustino/ Bureau des Mésarchitectures, where he developed several art, public art and architecture projects. In 2010/2011 wrote his master thesis – Urban Action: an idea of contemporary urban practice – under the supervision of Pedro Gadanho. Meanwhile, was editor-in-chief of Dédalo magazine, curator and producer of the seminar Displace: Deviations on Architectural Practice. In 2009 collaborated with Vienna-based office feld72 where he developed and constructed two of their ‘Urban Strategies’: Moggessa Blackbox (Italy) and PublicTrailers© (China) commissioned by the 2009 Hong Kong & Shenzhen Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture.
