Museu da Cidade (Porto City Museum) Poster promoting the website launch

Artur Rebelo

The City Museum’s morphology, which expands across different axes through the urban grid, resembles a rhizome. In botanical terms, a rhizome is a type of stem that expands horizontally, usually underground, although it may also develop aerial sections. Multiple and heterogeneous, randomly developing, the rhizome is a powerful living metaphor, that has often been adopted in the field of the sciences of human thought.
