Abstract

This book is a small manual supporting the "making of architecture," dedicated to the project’s scholars and practitioners. The text contained herein tells of the strategies outlined by Eduardo Souto de Moura, which are geared to solving practical design- and construction-related problems, while expounding on his buildings’ relationships with existing structures. The interest shown by Eduardo Souto de Moura in university work and the reasons which, from 2014, led him to take up a teaching commitment at the Politecnico di Milano (Milan Polytechnic) bring forth an unprecedented aspect of the architect's professional and human profile, such that it got me observing and interpreting the expressions and gestures depicting him in this role. The notes collected during conversations, interviews and idea exchanges in our Portuguese and Mantuan meetings and on the frequent occasions for national and international cultural exchanges constitute the soul of this volume. This tells of an architect who loves architecture and, without any self-congratulations on his role as a teacher, of a man who is open to research and experimentation, while contributing toward getting to know a figure recognized among the Masters of the History of Architecture of our time.
