Manuel Correia Fernandes. 18 Obras

Paulo Providência, Pedro Baía (eds.)

This book, published by Circo de Ideias and edited by Paulo Providência and Pedro Baía, presents 18 works designed between 1966 and the year 2011 by the architect Manuel Correia Fernandes in a selection that pretends to document his project practice, from Casa Zeferino Cruz in Luanda, passing through Cooperativas de Aldoar in Porto, to the Assembleia Legislativa da Região Autónoma dos Açores.

The selection of works was divided chronologically into a structure that groups three different programs — equipment, single-family housing, collective housing — interspersed by a preface by Artur Santos Silva, an interview by Paulo Providência, an essay by Carlos Machado e Moura and an essay by Matilde Seabra.

The book was supported by the Directorate-General for the Arts, the Centre for Social Studies of Coimbra University and EuroBic.
