  • DescriptionCritical Concrete promotes a new model to refurbish socially-relevant spaces – social housing, cultural centres, and public spaces – through educational programmes in Porto, Portugal.

    You will work with an international team from different backgrounds including architects, artists, urbanism and communication strategists. You will see the daily live of a young non profit organisation and have the opportunity to take initiative in problem solving in construction related aspects of the organization.
    This is the chance for young practitioners to engage with a cultural and architectural initiative at each of its levels and gain work experience in an exciting moment of creation.
