Publisher's description: Paulo Providencia is an architect who occupies a special place in contemporary Portuguese architecture, and he is recognized by many as one of the leaders of the generation following Eduardo Souto de Moura. His built work -- the majority of which is located in Portugal -- is based on his sound theoretical background and rooted in philosophical and anthropological research. Paulo Providencia -- Architectonica Percepta celebrates Providencia's influence on contemporary Portuguese architecture by looking closely at seven of his key buildings. The buildings are presented in striking duotone photographs taken by Alberto Placido, and each building in the book is documented with selected plans and details about its design and construction. Rounding out the book are five essays by Providencia, reflecting on his work and his influences, such as Peter Zumthor.
