TC CUADERNOS 154/155: Carrilho da Graça. Architecture 1995-2022

Joâo Luis Carrilho da Graça is recognized for the territorial, radical and even artistic dimension of his work. An architecture that he defines as “artistic possibility that always has construction as its reference”.

This monographic issue of TC Cuadernos intends to show his production focusing on this not so studied aspect of his work, that of construction.

We go through his main achievements from 1995 to the present. A selection of 18 works, located mostly in Portugal, where the constructive context still allows working on a small scale and with proximity, making it possible to develop that constructive sensitivity that we see in its architecture and that we show here with drawings, sections, elevations, construction details and photographs.

Throughout its 446 pages, we discover the different sensitivities that make up Carrilho da Graça's extensive career. His structural sensitivity, with the defense of risky proposals, but also his sensitivity towards heritage in his different interventions. Also noteworthy is his defense of the autonomy of the architect, and the incorporation or creation of materials outside the standard market solutions to respond to the problems of each project.
