Reflex Exhibition and Graphics


P-06 creates a reflective exhibition celebrating the centennial of the Portuguese Constitution of 1911.

One hundred years after the Portuguese Constitution of 1911 inaugurated the country’s first republican government, the Portuguese Assembly wanted to celebrate its impact and remind visitors that the Constitution is more than just a piece of paper.

P-06 Atelier (Lisbon) was tasked with creating an exhibition in its honor in the antechamber to the Assembly of the Republic, housed in a 400-year-old neoclassical palace.

P-06 Atelier creates a shimmery acoustical skin for a new multiuse foyer at Lisbon’s Pavilion of Knowledge.

The Pavilion of Knowledge of the Seas was one of the most emblematic exhibits during the ocean-themed 1998 Lisbon World Exposition. In 1999, Ciencia Viva (“Living Science”) moved its headquarters into the building and it became a permanent interactive science and technology museum called, more simply, the Pavilion of Knowledge (Pavilhão do Conhecimento).

Vibrant color and Dada-inspired graphics enliven a French performing arts center.

In the ancient French city of Poitiers—known for its medieval architecture and one of the oldest universities in Europe—the new Theatre and Auditorium of Poitiers provides a contemporary contrast. The 345,000-sq.-ft. cube, with its glowing glass façade, enfolds two box-like containers for theater and musical performances.
