The preservation of architectural documents from ancient civilizations is crucial for understanding human habitats and the evolution of the built environment. In 2022, the Lisbon School of Architecture, University of Lisbon, established the Architecture, Urbanism, and Design Archives (ARCH/VES) with the aim of identifying, collecting, processing, studying, disseminating, and safeguarding the records of Portuguese architects from the 19th century to the present day. With a collection from 64 professionals to date, ARCH/VES serves not only as a repository of historical knowledge but also as an active educational resource in the field of Architecture.
Playing a multifaceted role in holistic education, ARCH/VES significantly emphasizes the importance of archival research in preparing future professionals, acting as a catalyst for innovation. Through workshops and practical experimentation, students explore the symbiotic relationship between theory and practice, challenging conventional paradigms and stimulating creativity. Inspired by renowned institutions such as the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Technical University of Munich, we advocate for a pedagogical approach that integrates archival research with design methodologies, enriching academic discourse and revitalizing professional practice.
With testimonials from students, teachers, and professionals, it is evident that ARCH/VES plays a vital role in shaping a new generation of architects, enriching their understanding of architectural principles and preparing them to face the challenges of the future. In conclusion, the transformative impact of ARCH/VES transcends the boundaries between tradition and innovation in architectural preservation and education, propelling architectural discourse forward and ensuring its relevance in a constantly evolving built environment.
