Malka Architecture / The Green Machine, 2014

At a moment when climate changes are even more widely felt, Eco-Visionaries launch the debate on a vast array of questions associated with the Anthropocene – the recent designation for a geological period defined by the impact of human action. With contributions from over thirty five artists and architects, the show in Lisbon is the first and most wide-ranging of the four exhibitions that will appear simultaneously in Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and Sweden.
