This small yet densely packed and intriguingly designed guide revisits and reconsiders more than 70 built works by Eduardo Souto de Moura, selected by the architect himself. Intended as a reference book, it also shows how his architecture changes from north to south in Portugal.
Each project is given with objective data as a complement to the reader’s journey, such as the circumstances of the commission, stages of the design process, simultaneous projects, contingencies of construction, and even subsequent changes to the project.
The texts are based on the architect’s own writings, interviews, and lectures, thereby helping to communicate the true essence of each building.
