Golf is not a sport. It’s a powerful urbanization tool. A practice that mediates between nature, the city and the bodies to train power over the territory. The new cities are planned with the golf course as an urbanizing engine. Insert the golf in Figueira means to represent the political sphere where decision are taken, negotiates between agents, it’s a place where urban performs.

The project aims to implement access to represent other bodies and other voices with different instruments based on each citizen, expressing heterogeneous diversity that public space can hold. Golf as a practice associated with places of sport, outside walls, wants to situate in New Publics as a place to promote the urban in the city center that can serve as a symbolic resource to enhancement and improvement of deteriorated urban center of Lisboa. An action where disrupt other bodies, excluded of these places, of decision, ultimately excluded from the game, take sides and become a part of a new place of decisions: the Civic Swing.
