Malagueira : Álvaro Siza in Évora
Brigitte Fleck e Gunther Pfeiffer
Capa dura, 272 pp, 23 x 32 cm
Forty years ago, a sociological and civil development experiment was started in Évora, Portugal: the Malagueira district of Álvaro Siza.
Editors Brigitte Fleck and Günter Pfeifer document the creation of this unusual and unique city district, showing its development into the present day. Abílio Dias Fernandes, Roberto Collovà, Enrico Molteni, José Pinto Duarte, Jean-Michel Léger, and even Álvaro Siza himself contributed stories, facts, analyses about, and pictures and plans of the various construction phases.
This richly illustrated volume offers 49 sketches of Siza in original size and blueprints as well as a preface from Hanns Zischler.
