Pororó is a series of conferences organized by MAPA with already more than 15 editions. With guests from various fields and nationalities, it aims to be a platform to meet, spread and discuss issues related to architecture, design and the city. Both MAPA offices in Montevideo and Porto Alegre open their doors to receive students, professionals, stakeholders and friends. Pororó, therefore, is an instance to enjoy together the reflection on what we are building and constructing collectively.
In 2017, there were 6 editions of Pororó. Architect David Barragán (Ecuador) presented the work of Alborde, his practice focused on social integration through architecture and culture.
