GESTU’s workgroup has developed and participated in the production and dissemination of scientific work.
The group promotes the integration of dissertations and master's and PhD dissertations in Architecture and Urbanism, with scientific guidance from Professor Carlos Henriques Ferreira, within the framework of the themes developed.
GESTU has its research core (as part of CIAUD) in the office 6.1.5 of the Faculty of Architecture, University of Lisbon (FA/ULisboa).
They have been developing collaboration and cooperation protocols between Faculty of Architecture, University of Lisbon (FA/ULisboa) and public entities (the Municipality of Lisbon, the CIUL (Centro de Informação Urbana de Lisboa), the Municipal Archive of Lisbon, the Municipality of Amadora) and private entities (the Nacional Coach Museum, the Casa do Alentejo – in the area of Tourism, the SRU – in the area of Urban Rehabilitation).
The research is guided by a compromise between theoretical and critical reflection on the territory and a strong laboratory component, supported by the value of the city's design.
Based on four main lines of research, the scientific work promotes the relations between a morpho-typological reading and the components of urban policies, economic dynamics and social contents:
THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE CITY IN QUESTION;
Team: Jorge Nicolau, Manuela Mendes
TOURISM, URBANISM AND EVASION ARCHITECTURES;
Team: Joana Pereira; Catarina Mauritius
Contributors: Vânia Penedo, Patrícia Marques, Cristina Perdigão, Cristina Pereira, Isadora Ramos
THE BOUNDARIES OF THE PROJECT AND THE CITY;
Team: Catarina Maurício, Joana Pereira, Patrícia Fernandes
ITINERARIES, FORMS AND PROCESSES OF METROPOLITAN EXPANSION;
Team: Cátia Tomé, Leonel Fadigas, Joana Pereira, Patrícia Tomé, Ana Lúcia Clemente, Maria João Santos, Catarina Maurício, Mariana Rebelo, Patrícia Fernandes
Integrating these concerns were created URBAN LABS, with various scales of analysis, AmaLAB (urban lab of Amadora), LxLAB (urban lab of Lisbon) and AquaLAB (lab of Tejo estuary).
