Vitrúvio já não mora aqui

André Tavares

The book «Vitrúvio já não mora aqui», published by Circo de Ideias and authored by André Tavares, photographs by Nuno Cera and with a preface by Pedro Baía, is a biography of the printed editions of Vitruvius. When analyzing the 500 year history of a book, the permeability that has always existed between the theoretical text and the construction of architecture becomes noticeable, together with the uses and manipulations that the author and the treatise «De architectura» offered.

The book is part of the collection «Lições de Arquitectura», an editorial project that aims to bring together a set of classes that portray contemporary thinking about the theory and practice of architecture.

The editorial project was supported by the Landscape, Heritage and Territory Laboratory (Lab2PT) of Minho University and the General Directorate for Book, Archives and Libraries.
