presentation

Comparative study of 19 housing estates designed and built between 1966 and 1975 in various cities of Portugal, within the framework of the Economic Housing - Federation of Pension Funds (HE-FCP) and the Housing Development Fund (FFH). The link between these sets is that they were designed by the same architect - Justino Morais (1928-2011) - and that they were the result of the application of a "Modular System" developed by Morais in 1962 as "Regional Architect" of HE-FCP. The analysis of these sets will partially bridge the lack of studies on economic housing outside the municipality of Lisbon between 1960 and 1980 (Portas, 2013: 11).
