Porosis - The Architecture of Nuno Brandao Costa

Author(s): Andre CEPEDA

architecture monographs | new arrivals

POROSIS invites an intense look at the work of the new figure in the Porto School of Architecture, after Eduardo Souto Moura and Alvaro Siza. The singularity of Nuno Brandao Costa's work lies in his sustained attention to the primary elements of construction and its plasticity. Through new materials and techniques, his work has built upon the clarity of traditional Portuguese architecture. Andre Cepeda travelled for some months photographing the work of Nuno Brandao Costa. More a sensitive approach than a literal document, this book is a powerful testimony of Portuguese architecture nowadays, through the surprising work of this architect. The images, by one of the most highly regarded Portuguese photographers, brilliantly challenge the limits of an architectural monograph. 167 colour and 63 b/w photos, 82 technical drawings
