"With a rich social and urban history, Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, has become a city that is is full of verve, where new brands are popping up in historical neighbourhoods, creating new hotspots for tourism, business and innovation. To help showcase both sides of Lisbon, we have divided this guide into two: Traditional Lisbon and Contemporary Lisbon...These are the stories of real people, with a passion for art, sports, food, innovation and for the neighbourhoods they live in. People who are divided between past and present, but above all else, as a collective, passionate about Lisbon."
"Today, Oporto is a city at a particular buzzing point: it’s a tourist spot beloved by travellers from all over the world and, simultaneously, a space with a complex social and urban history. This guide reflects this day-to-day dichotomy, featuring both the communities that are fervently dedicated to the city’s forgotten history and those looking for the new spaces that are changing it. This project aims to show Oporto through this experience, by showing both of the city’s faces: “Traditional Oporto” and “Trendy Oporto.” It will give you a modern perspective of the city as well as the necessary historical context...Torn between past and future, these communities seek to impact the city in a positive way, always driven by passion for a place called Oporto."
