 The idea of Utopia springs from a natural desire of transformation, of evolution pertaining to humankind and, therefore, one can find expressions of “utopian” desire in every civilization. Having to do explicitly with human condition, Utopia accompanies closely cultural evolution, almost as a symbiotic organism. Maintaining its roots deeply attached to ancient myths, utopian expression followed, and sometimes preceded cultural transformation.
Through the next almost five hundred pages (virtually one for each year since Utopia was published) researchers on the fields of Architecture and Urbanism, Arts and Humanities present the result of their studies on the different areas of expertise under the umbrella of Utopia. Past, present, and future come together in one book. They do not offer their readers any golden key. Many will leave questions unanswered, as they should.
The texts presented in Proportion Harmonies and Identities - UTOPIA(S) WORLDS AND FRONTIERS OF THE IMAGINARY were compiled with the intend to establish a platform for the presentation, interaction and dissemination of researches. It aims also to foster the awareness and discussion on the topic of Harmony and Proportion with focus on different utopian visions and readings relevant to arts, science and humanities and its importance and benefits for the community at large.

"O número, a medida, as construções geométricas, a relação entre dimensões, isto é, a proporção, são expressões de harmonia e ritmo e, mais do que isso, são uma fonte de beleza nas coisas na natureza, como os cristais, as plantas, os animais, mas também os artefactos humanos, como os edifícios e as obras de arte em geral. Esta é uma ideia antiga que corresponde à noção pitagórica de que o mundo é uma criação matemática harmoniosa e que, de modo a participar nessa harmonia, as coisas que fazemos têm de obedecer às mesmas leis matemáticas. Proporção (des)Harmonias e Identidades visa promover a consciencialização e reflexão sobre a importância deste tema com a divulgação de pesquisas de variados campos do saber."
