domingo, 30 de outubro de 2016


In recent years, Lisbon has become one of the European Cities with the larger tourism growth. Each year, 6 million people come to visit the Portuguese capital: 200.000 tourists every day. Tourism brings opportunities in a city heavily hit by global crisis: about 15% of Portugal domestic product and 8% jobs in Portugal, nowadays are related with tourism. But in the meanwhile, the city is basically disappearing: over the last 30 years, Lisbon lost about 300.000 inhabitants, vacancy rate in the traditional centre is over 40%, about 5.000 buildings are disused, and today only 12.000 persons live in the city center. 

In April 2016, STADSLAB (Urban Design Laboratory of Tilburg University - Amsterdam) organized an international Masterclass on City Making & Tourism Gentrification for professionals and graduates: the urban intervention case-study was focused on Mouraria, one of the oldest Lisbon's neighborhood. Originated as a 13th century Moorish neighborhood and remained a marginal, multicultural and poor downtown area, nowadays, parts of Mouraria are already affected by tourism: cheap property prices and proximity to other tourist destinations raise realistic assumptions that Mouraria will soon face large influx of investment in real estate and tourism infrastructure. The opportunity is its economical development, but the risk is the lost of its identity.

Under The Influence || New York Hardcore

In the first episode of the series Under the Influence, we go from the streets of the Lower East Side all the way to South Korea to examine one of the most distinctive genres to sprout from the concrete of New York City: hardcore. Along the way, we’ll meet with everyone from tattoo shop owners to chefs to government workers—all of whom have been inspired by the teachings at musical meccas like CBGB’s and A7 and found ways to apply the lessons learned from the scene to their own lives. Join us—as well as members of Agnostic Front, Title Fight, Youth of Today, Incendiary, and more—as we explore a world living under the influence of New York Hardcore.

The Last Mambabatok || Short Film

Apo Whang-Od is considered the world's last Mambabatok (hand-tap tattoo artist) from her generation. At the estimated age of 99, she is now passing the tattooing tradition to a new generation in her tribe including her grand-niece Grace.

The tradition of this style of tattoo started as a symbol of pride for warriors and a marking of beauty for females in the Butbut tribe and has now taken a unique turn in their village, Kalinga, situated remotely in the mountains of the Luzon province in The Philippines.

Fairly Normal || Andrew Allen

“This dude looks like he should be in the Misfits.” We can’t remember who said this while watching Andrew Allen’s Hockey 2 part, but we back it. Although he’s maybe a little too nice. With style, power, a nonchalant demeanor and unassuming approach, Andrew has become one of our favorites. So we loaded up the gear and went to spend some time in his old stomping grounds, an odd OC community called San Juan Capistrano to see where it all started. We pet llamas, saw where he started skating and toured his childhood home all before heading to LA to skate with Terp and AVE
But it’s all there, go watch, all new Fairly Normal starring Andrew Allen.

Drain || A Dogbowl Short

The Dog Bowl, originally known only to the most hardcore DogTown crew, was located in Northern Santa Monica - The Dogtown crew had their own pool that they could skate in peace. "Dino's Dog Bowl" was shortened to just "The Dog Bowl." A teenager with terminal cancer asked his father to drain the family pool on their huge estate overlooking The Brentwood Country Club Golf Course. Some of the most famous photographs in skateboarding were shot at the Dog Bowl. Tony Alva is credited with doing the first front side aerials at the pool in the fall of 1977. It was named "The Dog Bowl" because there were dogs always hanging out at the pool. On any given day over the summer of 1977 most of the entire DogTown crew were at the pool. Some of the best skating sessions EVER took place there.

Leonardo Fioravanti || The Arrival

Over the course of the past year, Leonardo Fioravanti has turned from a kid you need to keep tabs on, to a man you need to start paying attention to…And potentially the first Italian world champion.  

Leo is no stranger to the surf world. And the surf world is certainly no stranger to him. The little charmer has had a spotlight shining on him since before he even hit his teens. And why not? He had eerily good form, a myriad of airs, a fearless approach to fearsome waves and a carve as big as his smile. The world was his, and the hype was inevitable.

 But those days are over.

Leo’s 18 now. An adult. He’s had a certain fire in him ever since returning to the water after sustaining a broken back at Pipeline. This year, he grabbed the lead on the WQS and has already beaten both Kelly Slater and defending World Champ Adriano de Souza as a wildcard on the WSL. Suffice to say, Leo has arrived.

So now its’ time to put the noise to rest. No more hype. No more big claims. No more calling him a kid. From here on out, Leo’s just going to let his surfing do the talking. Rest assured, we’ll be listening.

London Locks || Short Documentary

London Locks is a short documentary that explores an exciting new subculture that is emerging from the creative cracks in London. A subculture that is being driven by some of the most stimulating and expressive thinkers in London's youth community and it involves hair.

The film follows six individuals whom are pioneering a change in the way young black men and women feel about their hair and personal image. It explores each person's reasoning behind why they decided to grow their dreadlocks, what it means to each of them individually and how they see the movement moving forward as a collective.

They are Marc Hare: Fashion Designer, Kieran Pharaoh: DJ, Ayishat Akanbi: Fashion Stylist, Curtis Essel: Blogger, Skinny Macho: DJ, Jamel Williams: Film Maker.

By shining a light on their daily maintenance and grooming routines, myths are broken down about dreadlocks, in an inspiring and educational way.

Set in London, a city known for it’s diversity and innovation in the creative arts, the film showcases why the capital is at the forefront of this movement. Taking the viewer across the city from east to west through each individuals stories we glimpse how the frustrations of London’s past is fueling them to drive change and challenge how we see and interpret dreadlocks and natural hair.

A film which encapsulates both the good and bad of the city, but which ultimately highlights hope for a young generation eager to express themselves freely and honestly.

Kanye West || The Art Of Staging

At this point in his career, with a wealth of extravagant fashion shows and concert tours behind him, it is easy to overlook the excess of a Kanye West event as mere show-offishness. Though West may never be one to shy away from show-offishness, he is certainly not the kind of artist to make something big if it doesn’t serve a purpose. And it doesn’t get much bigger than his stage sets, which happen to be the subject of an immersive new documentary on his ability to integrate stagecraft into his work.

 Picking up from his first true tour “event,” the documentary explores how Yeezy’s Glow in the Dark Tour became such a game changer for the medium. But this doesn’t even come close to explaining the level of detail and careful consideration that went into the now-infamous Yeezus Tour, one inspired by the films of surrealist filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky.

 Watch the full documentary below to get clued in to Kanye West’s inner brain activity.
