The Habitação de Territórios (Land Dwelling) stage set is a remarkable exercise of architectural skills. It can vary from a street to a lift, a corridor to a chamber, part of a city to a bed or living room, a house (or two, or even more). It is a changeable wall, penetrable sometimes, sometimes inhabited, sometimes enigmatically impervious. The jury was impressed by the ingenuity and versatility of the strategy and the economy of means with which it was resolved.
