CEAA | Centro de Estudos Arnaldo Araújo Architectural Studies research group Axis: Dramatic Architectures
Arnaldo Araújo Research Centre (CEAA) is a R&D unit based at Escola Superior Artística do Porto which develops research in the area of Art Studies, specifically in the territories of Theory, Criticism and History.
Originally set up as part of ESAP’s internal structure, in 2007 CEAA became a fully recognized research unit, funded by FCT (Portuguese Government Foundation for Science and Technology, uRD 4041).
Currently it is organized into three research groups and one common research line. Research groups: (1) Architectural Studies; (2) Film Studies Art; (3) Critical Studies. Research line: Common Place
Based on an understanding of theory, criticism, history and practice as differentiated yet interrelated knowledge fields, the Arquitectural Studies group has been developing both fundamental and applied, research in the field of Architecture, understood here in a broad sense.
This conference is organized in framework of one of its current main axes of research:
Dramatic Architectures axis is focused on the construction of a theoretical body on architecture and the performing arts, based on common arguments –as space and light as design tools– , as well as on case studies and readings of architectural, scenic, dramatic and performative experiences. This axis integrates researchers from the areas of Architecture and Theatre. The latter also work in their own territory.
