Iberia Critica was a conference where young portuguese and spanish architects presented their work, as well as discussed the architecture's practice present and future inside an economical crisis context, that brought many changes to it.

We were asked to design the event's poster and its program, containing the schedule and information about the speakers.

    16 architects/studios of these two border countries, that together form the Iberian Peninsula, were invited to the debate: 8 were portuguese and 8 were spanish.

    We started by choosing a folded format that we believed would translate this major geographic component, by resembling the experience of using a map.
    It was also very important for us that the event's identity would graphically translate in many ways the idea of these two sides/perspectives/experiences over the same subject.

    The composition sets itself around a line that crosses the poster all the way: at the front, by dividing the two words of the title and, at the back, by creating kind of a mirrored timeline that presents the speakers and graphically confronts them – the upper side is for one country and the bottom one for the other.
