Architecture as the construction of the places where people interact with one other, with nature, with other creatures and with inanimate objects... (Manuel Tainha 1922/2012)
Manuel Tainha holds a key position in the field of architecture in Portugal and in its approach to modernity.
To engage in a dialogue with his ethics and his poetics, means to chime with space, light and materials, but also with movement, with the time and the life that inhabit it.
Works conceived between the 1950s and the 1970s, filmed today, at a given point of its existence, become the space for this dialogue.
