Lisboa Moderna

Ana Tostões

This book, published by Docomomo International and Circo de Ideias, and authored by Ana Tostões, proposes thinking about the modern city of Lisbon based on a reading of its transformation and a historical and critical analysis of a group of modern projects that marked the territory throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. Based on archival research and a photographic survey, Lisboa Moderna focuses on the neighbourhoods of Alvalade, Infante Santo, Olivais Norte, Olivais Sul, Restelo and Telheiras, revealing the unique application of international urban planning concepts as well as works that stand out for their modernity, such as the Instituto Superior Técnico, the Monsanto Forest Park, the Building and Garden of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the Sagrado Coração de Jesus Church, the Centro Cultural de Belém and the German School of Lisbon.

The editorial project was supported by the Lisbon City Hall.
