Go with God

Honor Award
Go with God, Eduardo Fernandes/Ermida Nossa Senhora da Conceição, R2 Design

When an 18th century Portuguese chapel was reopened as an art gallery, the owners and R2 Design (Porto, Portugal) used its façade as the canvas for an artful typographic composition that recalls the building’s former use, but creates a new cultural venue.

Unfinished Trajectories

Merit Award
Unfinished Trajectories, Casa Da Musica, R2 Design

Casa da Música in Porto, Portugal, is the Rem Koolhaas-designed concert hall space that houses the Casa da Música cultural institution and its three orchestras. Built as part of Porto’s project for European Culture Capital in 2001, it was finished in 2005 and immediately became a cultural icon in the city.

As part of its efforts to continually engage new audiences and show off the hall’s non-concert spaces, Casa de Música invited several designers and artists to create installations, providing them with a €5,000 budget for production.

Risking Reality

Merit Award
Risking Reality, Berardo Collection Museum, R2 Design

The Arriscar o Real (Risking Reality) exhibition at the Berardo Collection Museum in Lisbon focuses on various artists who have explored the mimesis (imitation) of reality and transformed this question into a paradox. Divided into three sections with corresponding spaces, the exhibition explores the meaning of the real and figurative in space. Rather than relying solely on an interpretive approach, R2 Design used three-dimensional typography to intervene directly in the 3,000-sq.-meter space.
