Arquitectura Portuguesa Contemporanea 1991 2001 - Contemporary Architecture in Portugal

£40.00

Product description

Some wear to plastic dust jacket, as any used book with this kind of jacket would be. Some of the blue colouring from the first page has worn away, presumably by the dust jacket. Otherwise, internally clean and bright.

Written in both Portuguese and English.

In the ephemeral world of fashion and image , architecture seems to be gaining more space. The connotations of the languages displayed by architectural magazines, more than showing the contexts of the design projects, show the intrinsic qualities of the work of the architect him/herself. We have the strange feeling that the architectural production, the artistic practice, the material expression of a society's culture, is being transformed in a consumption item, that, as any other product, is publicised and sold.
The ease with which today with exchange technological information between continents allows, theoretically, to overthrow geographic and cultural distances, and architecture, as well, gains unlimited possibilities for experimentation and of approach to more advanced forms of expression. This event intends to check the level of originality of the Portuguese architectural production of the last tine years, by confronting the works of several generations of architects.
To understand the trends, the places and the professional training of each individual, the relationship between territory and architecture, the relationship with those who use the architectural object, a continuations and a separation of history and tradition, are some of the themes that inst erect the critical interventions, with texts and conferences, making the framework of recent architectural production.
The selection of the architects presented here is based on the recognition of the quality of their works. The critical responsibility of the curators of this event.
Some are not present because it is impossible to know all the architects of the country; others did not, for their own reasons, want to be part of this issue. Some names are not present because we do not agree with their architectural production, which in some cases we do not even consider as architecture.
