A House in Ruins by Nuno Brandão Costa

In Melgaço, in the former province of Minho, in the north of Portugal, Nuno Brandão Costa carried out an intervention on the remains of a small rural building, inserting a house-jewel box inside it.



Modern Portuguese architecture has always cultivated a sophisticated relationship with the tradition of popular construction, starting with the campaign to document spontaneous architecture that Fernando Távora, Álvaro Siza’s teacher, directed at the end of the 1950s.

This trend continues to manifest itself in the interest on the part of many architects to reclaim, in their projects, fragments of the past that are juxtaposed with contemporary components.
