“LUANDANDO – the gerund of the city” materializes the experiences, ideas and perspectives shared during several conversations with personalities linked to Luanda, from different areas. The interdisciplinary works presented here show a complex, vivid and glowing city. They reflect on how architecture and urban space are ‘done’, in a continuous and incessant collective effort.
