Economic decline and social cuts have engendered widespread unease across the whole of the Iberian Peninsula. In the case of architects, the situation is especially dire, as the region has seen the collapse of the housing market and diminishing funds for public projects. This issue of ‘AV Monographs’ concentrates its focus on Portugal, where there is yet an optimistic outlook for exceptional architecture which demonstrates both material quality and formal refrain. Included are texts by Luis Fernández-Galiano and Jorge Figueira, plus diverse projects like the Lisbon Oceanarium Extension by Pedro Campos Costa, Casa NuDi by Nuno Piedade Alexandre, and the Pedestrian Bridge in Covilhã by Carrilho da Graça & Afaconsult.
