Résumé

These Proceedings have been produced from the submissions to the ‘Colonial and Postcolonial Landscapes: Architecture, Cities, Infrastructure’ I International Congress, which took place from the 16th to the 18th of January 2019 at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, in Lisbon, Portugal. This conference is organized within the project ‘Coast to Coast – Late Portuguese Infrastructural Development in Continental África (Angola and Mozambique): Critical and Historical Analysis and Postcolonial Assessment’, funded by ‘Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia’ (FCT – Foundation for Science and Technology) with the reference PTDC/ATP-AQI/0742/2014.
Based on the survey, cataloguing and contextualization of the infrastructural process of the former Portuguese colonial territory in continental Africa (Angola and Mozambique) in the last century of Portuguese colonization (1875-1975), the research aims at analyzing the influence of colonial strategies on the current developments in these two countries.
The project was undertaken through two phases:

1) analysis of the infrastructure process from the mapping of three specific typologies of colonial public works (described below), which will be approached from the perspective of archival and documentary analysis, cartography and historiographic description;
2) identification and critical analysis of the state of these infrastructures (reuse, reinforcement or abandonment) after independence in 1975. The research is based on the thesis that colonial territorial infrastructure processes leave resilient marks in the post-colonial built landscape, whose impact must be analyzed in order to support future actions.
Three programmatic typologies are considered to be decisive in territorial occupation and are still visible today: (i) transport networks (highways, ports, railways and airports); ii) production of hydroelectric energy (dams and facilities); (iii) settlements associated with the exploitation of natural resources (mining and agriculture). The three programs are significantly interrelated, reproducing the Portuguese centralizing model of colonial exploration. The team is made up of Portuguese, Angolan and Mozambican researchers, architects, historians and archivists. Partner Institutions are Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Arquivo Histórico Ultramarino, Universidade Eduardo Mondlane and Universidade Técnica de Angola.
