    A Journey Through Poetic Architecture:

    El Croquis 176 delves into the captivating world of Eduardo Souto de Moura, a Portuguese architect renowned for his masterful use of materiality, light, and context to create poetic and evocative spaces. This issue, spanning the prolific years of 2009 to 2014, showcases Souto de Moura’s ability to transform simple forms and local materials into architectural experiences that resonate with the soul.

    Beyond the Facade:

    While Souto de Moura’s buildings often impress with their clean lines and striking silhouettes, El Croquis 176 invites us to look beyond the facade. The publication delves into the meticulous attention to detail, the masterful manipulation of light and shadow, and the deep connection to the surrounding landscape that define his architectural language.

    Highlights of the Issue:

    • Casa na Serra da Arrábida: Nestled amidst the lush greenery of the Arrábida mountain range, this private residence seamlessly blends with its surroundings. The use of natural stone, concrete, and wood creates a harmonious dialogue between the built form and the landscape.
    • Casa Antes do Muro: This unique house, built against a historic city wall in Matosinhos, Portugal, challenges the traditional notion of separation between interior and exterior. Large windows and open spaces blur the boundaries, creating a sense of connection to the urban context.
    • Swiss Pavilion at the 2010 Venice Biennale: This temporary pavilion, constructed entirely from stacked wooden logs, embodied a powerful metaphor for resilience and reconstruction. The raw beauty of the material and the interplay of light and shadow created a contemplative and evocative space.
    • Burgo Tower in Porto: This office building, rising from the historic city center of Porto, showcases Souto de Moura’s ability to integrate contemporary architecture into a sensitive urban context. The use of granite and glass creates a dialogue between the building and its surroundings, while the rooftop terrace offers stunning views of the city.
    • Chapel of Santa Maria: Located in a rural setting near Guimarães, Portugal, this small chapel embodies Souto de Moura’s minimalist approach. The simple concrete form and the use of natural light create a space of profound serenity and spiritual contemplation.

    Beyond just stunning visuals, the issue delves into the core principles that define Souto de Moura’s architecture:

    • Poetic Interpretation of Space: Souto de Moura’s buildings are not merely functional; they are vessels for emotion and storytelling, evoking a sense of wonder and inviting personal interpretation.
    • Masterful Use of Materiality: He utilizes a diverse range of materials, often employing them in unexpected ways to create unique textures and dialogues between past and present.
    • Contextual Sensitivity: Souto de Moura’s architecture engages deeply with the cultural and historical context of its surroundings, drawing inspiration from local traditions and narratives.

    El Croquis 176 is a captivating journey into the world of Eduardo Souto de Moura, offering a deeper understanding of his architectural language and its profound impact on contemporary design. It is a must-read for anyone interested in poetry in architecture, the power of light and materiality, and the creation of spaces that resonate with the human spirit.
