"From Porto to Lisbon"
from Arquitectura Viva

The architectural image of contemporary Portugal has come to be associated with the dazzling light and purity of lines of Porto's lyrical builders. Now, from the banks of the river Douro, the modernizing impetus of a country steeped in a process of renewal has reached the estuary of the Tagus. This area has been made the scene of the century's last world fair, through which old faded Lisbon aspires to consolidate a future of metropolitan dimensions. Portuguese architecture today situates itself between the legacy of wise traditions and the expectations of a future still in the making.
