Lisbon in May seems like a paradise for people from central europe, still shaken by winter, like me. While visiting the capital of Portugal, I had the impression that only few people are actually living in the city centre. The rest oft he people there were tourists.
Looking at the beautiful empty houses, a poster on the side of the street caught my attention. It was a hand drawn picture of a young man with glasses that said: "Oscar precisa duma casa em Lisboa." – "Oscar needs a home in Lisbon". I was shocked by the ambiguity of this beautiful city, and started to collect more logos, ornaments and drawings. This was the start of "Faces of Lisbon", a pattern design project about finding home.
