About Change this

João Andresen (Porto, December 13, 1920 - Porto, June 24, 1967) was a Portuguese architect. His work is influenced by the international theoretical context of the 1940s and the work of Walter Gropius and Siegfried Giedion in the postwar period. From the 1950s onwards is visible his interest in the work of Marcel Breuer and his concept of the binuclear house, where is a separation between the day and night space. His architecture combine elements of international modernist architecture with common construction processes in vernacular construction, such as stone or tile.
