EXHIBIT | CARRILHO DA GRAÇA: LISBOA
The exhibition shows the work of architect João Luis Carrilho da Graça and his peculiarity of prioritizing the territory and the topography as the support of his works. More than a clipping of locality or chronology, the selected works show how the architect thinks his projects from his “theory of the territory”, that relates the influence of the topography with the human routes and its constructions. The event will feature a lecture by Carrilho da Graça.
