Aires Mateus: Private, Public and Unbuilt Work (a.mag 25)
Manual and Francisco Aires Mateus, texts by Ricardo Carvalho, Marta Sequeira, Camilo Rebelo
For its expanded tenth anniversary edition, the magazine presents a special feature on Portuguese architects Manuel and Francisco Aires Mateus. Presenting over 30 works categorically divided in three sections – private, public, unbuilt – and filled with innumerable drawings, plans, sections, and photographs, it offers an extraordinarily comprehensive and detailed look at highlights from their combined body of work. Texts by Ricardo Carvalho, Marta Sequeira, and Camilo Rebelo respectively introduce each of the three sections, adding key critical notes and insight regarding the architecture and why these designers have become so highly regarded in the community.
