Market of Santa Maria Da Feira

Santa Maria, Portugal

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 Tavora'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.
