Description Change this

This is one of the key works for the revision of the modern movement in the CIAM, forcing a change on the key focus of the practice of architecture in Portugal.

Fernando Távora's architecture springs from his questioning of modernity, he sought to integrate local and traditional values, values that were more popular than erudite, as is the case with the Vila de Feira Market.

This is also one of the first projects he was involved Siza Vieira. Despite being a young architect Office Tavora, actively participated in this project, and the only responsible for some aspects of the market, particularly in the colorful mosaics that designed for the different wings of the building.
