Guided Walking Tour starts from Cais do Sodré station and finishes at Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga.
Lisbon is a richly adorned vessel of trade, literally scarred and marked by its own history. From its geological birth on the banks of the Rio Tejo, to locus of global shipping and trade, it continues to undergo further phases of transformation.For ‘Close Closer’, Kreider & O’Leary will conduct a guided tour of the maritime edges of the city ‘en-promenade’ exploring specific details of the city fabric, focussing on the maritime history of the city. With archaeological levels of detail, they use props, images, texts and architectural elements to explore the site as the fulcrum for a number of inter-related systems, whether spatial, historical, social or political. These systems reveal a series of interlocking narrative threads that coalesce around the site, entangling its history and forming a foundational mesh for its future potential.
