In November 2010, the NATO Summit held in Lisbon dominated the political news of the world‘s media for 24 hours. In only three weeks Risco architects and P-06 designers created an ephemeral summit installation in the pavilions of Lisbon’s exhibition centre, which was designed not only to meet the strict requirements for an event of this scale but also to set standards in terms of sustainability

and communication design. The spaces that were created provided the framework not only for a political but also for a media event.


The book features contributions from Bárbara Coutinho, director of the MUDE Design and Fashion Museum, Karl Kegler, Doctorate and Senior Assistant at the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture at ETH Zurich and Alexandra Prado Coelho, journalist for the Público newspaper. Each chapter focuses on a topics related to the project, from architecture and construction to media exposure. In addition, the book contains contributions from authors involved in the project as well as complementary images and drawings. The photographs by Fernando Guerra were taken before and during the event especially for this book.
