“Cuando la Vivienda Colectiva era Moderna. Desde Portugal a otros territorios de expresión portuguesa. 1948-1974”

Inês Lima Rodrigues DOCTORAL THESIS

This doctoral research explores the forms of modern collective housing accomplished in Portugal and in other territories of Portuguese language under Oliveira Salazar’s dictatorship. lt seeks to highlight the indisputable values of modern architecture through the work by Portuguese architects in Portugal, Brazil, Angola, Mozambique and Macau, retaking the theme of Portuguese colonization as an imaginary of creative capacity, which enables both to get a vision of independence and the valuation of the territory. The period under investigation starts in 1948, heightens between the 50’s and the 60’s and finishes in 1974, the year of the April revolution.
