Eduardo Souto de Moura by Eduardo Souto de Moura( Book )

32 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among contemporary Portuguese architects there is a large group whose members, while trained or influenced by Alvaro Siza, have embarked on an independent line of common research; one of these is Eduardo Souto de Moura (b. 1952). This monograph presents the designer who has combined great attention to the "principle of settlement" with a respect for local architecture, expressed through the use of natural materials. Souta de Moura transforms the figurative elements of classical architecture using a modern sensibility. A minimalist approach and the discreet use of local materials are the essential components of his activity. Among his best-known projects: the Municipal Market in Braga (1980-84), the cultural center for the S.E.C. at Oporto (1981-91), houses at Miramar (1987-91) and Alcanena (1987-92), the patio houses at Matosinhos (1993-99) and the Portuguese pavilion at the Hannover Expo 2000 with Siza (1999). Essays by the authors, along with an interview with Siza, Francisco Tavora and Souto de Moura himself, introduce the architect's work."--Jacket

Eduardo Souto De Moura : tutte le opere by Eduardo Souto de Moura( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in Italian and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il libro si apre con la trascrizione di una conversazione tra Souto de Mura, Álvaro Siza e Fernando Tavora, i primi due allievi del secondo, tutti e tre legati da un sodalizio unico all'origine di esperienze progettuali nutrite da un medesimo sostrato culturale, ma dagli esiti diversi. Seguono i saggi di Leoni ed Esposito e i progetti e le costruzioni, ordinati in differenti capitoli tematici. Ogni capitolo è introdotto da scritti dell'architetto portoghese, atti ad illustrarne i contenuti. Questi testi, supportati dai contributi storico-critici, consentono di apprezzare le motivazioni poetiche e ideologiche sottese al lavoro svolto dal protagonista di questo volume. Un ultimo capitolo raccoglie le opere realizzate dall'architetto dal 2003, anno di uscita della prima edizione del volume a oggi; tra le opere di spicco le due case unifamiliari a Ponte de Lima, la torre per uffici Burgo a Boavista, il Centro d'arte contemporanea a Bragança, la Casa del Cinema Manoel de Oliveira a Porto, lo stadio municipale di Braga, le nuove stazioni della metropolitana di Porto, il museo Paula Rego a Cascais, il crematorio di Kortrijk in Belgio. Il volume è corredato da un regesto completo, dalla biografia e dalla bibliografia e illustrato dale fotografie appositamente realizzate da alessandra Chemollo e Fulvio Orsenigo. Il libro illustra ogni risvolto della personalità di un protagonista dell'architettura contemporanea e offre notevoli spunti per capire le ragioni del successo che la cultura progettuale portoghese si è conquistata negli ultimi anni. L'edizione ampliata e aggiornata della monografia edita nel 2003 da electaarchitettura sull'opera del maestro portoghese
