Architecture: How to contemporarily approach vernacular

There has been a surge of interest in renovating traditional ruins for their beauty and charm. With today’s needs, one should do it carefully, not to repeat vernacular answers and at the same time not to “disrespect” the existing structures. The approach should be a balance between old and new, where the new should highlight and respect the pre-existence of what once was, and at the same times prepare the new owners for a contemporary way of living.   Filipe ...Read more

Deborah shares her love of creativity and the indigenous ways

Celebrating Bees: Happy International Women’s Day

My relationship to bees is a mixed bag of rational awe at what they do and their role in nature, and irrational fear about getting stung. I say irrational not because it’s such a wild notion to think that I might get stung, but because even if I did, it would not be half as bad as my fear makes it out to be (note: I am lucky enough not to be allergic). Focusing on my awe, I thought I ...Read more

Pure Portugal’s top 5 ways to learn Portuguese (but please, not like Bobby Robson)

Brits abroad Learning the language is the preferable way to integrate in any foreign country. Most of mainland Europe appears to be able to communicate easily. Portuguese can understand Spanish. Dutch speak good English. The Germans, Swiss and Austrians speak each other’s languages. But English people are well known for not making an effort to bridge the cultural divide. Stereotypically, we will learn enough to get by and if needed, rely on shouting louder to make ourselves understood. Or we ...Read more
