GNRation | Braga

Between gigs my obvious post is about the space where they take place. GNRation is a space for relevant contemporary artists. The place promotes exhibitions, concerts/performances and educational programmes, it was the former precinct of the GNR, a Portuguese police force, its name derives from it.

It is quite a surprising place, after being transformed by architect José Manuel Carvalho Araújo, who had in mind “the concept of occupation as motif”, and “the occupation of Man by Nature“, exploring “the limit between an abandoned existent structure and a new invading body that takes over the space“.

          The place is very exposed to the sun, it’s very hot in the summer, it’s not easy to keep the plants growing, the watering is automatic, but that’s the idea to have a wall of plants!
