Universidade Nova Rectory, Lisboa, Portugal by AIRES MATEUS
The architects Francisco and Manuel Aires Mateus have a big place and a protagonism in the panorama of the Portuguese and international contemporary architecture. The magazine 2G constitutes the first monograph of the work of these brothers "lisboetas" and comes introduced with a text of the critic João Belo Rodeia, a commentary of Alberto Baeza Field on the house in Alenquer and a "informal conversation" with its teacher Gonçalo Byrne and Valentino Capelo de Sousa. Between presented/displayed works it is possible to indicate the magnificent residence of students in the university campus of Coimbra, rectorado of the Universidade Nova of Lisbon or the splendid exercises of unifamiliares houses, like the rehabilitation of a ruin of house in Alenquer, the house-patio of Alvalade, the house of weekend in the coast of Alentejo or the reconversion of an old wine warehouse in house in Brejos de Azeitão, all of them in Portugal.
