ABOUT THE SESSION
BOOK LAUNCH / TALK ON THE LEGACY OF RICHARD NEUTRA
Jofebar will launch Building Views, published by Circo de Ideias, on Monday the 20th November, at 6:30 pm, in its showroom in Matosinhos (Rua D. Marcos da Cruz 1240, Perafita). This first public presentation of the book will focus on Richard Neutra’s architecture and his contribution to the development of sliding glass doors and windows.
In the session, two sons of Richard Neutra – architect Dion Neutra and doctor Raymond Richard Neutra – will discuss with Eduardo Souto de Moura, an author whose work incorporated much of the legacy of Richard Neutra and Californian modern architecture, adopting sliding window/walls extensively. Souto de Moura was also one of the first architects to use minimalist windows, largely contributing for the success of this type of window. Architecture critic Jorge Figueira and the editor of the book Carlos Machado e Moura join the conversation.
This is the first of a series of conferences/debates that compose the national and international programme of presentation of the book, being each one of the sessions dedicated to different moments of the technical and architectural history of the window and including different guests.
