Short Bio

Paulo Manta Pereira (Lisbon, 1964) obtained his degree in Architecture at the Technical University of Lisbon (FAUTL, 1991) and defended his PhD thesis at ISCTE – IUL (2013). He practices architecture at Lisbon Municipality (since 2000), and both as evaluator and author, he has repercussed his scientific skills in projects of requalification of public space, urban design and architecture, mostly, in the housing sector. Convinced in the contemporary relevance of the thought and work of Raul Lino (1879-1974) he has expanded new problems and interpretations contained on his research within the scientific community.

research project at dinâmia'cet-Iscte

Raul Lino (1879-1974) conceived with each new synthesis of decorative arts, architecture and urbanism, the Gesamtkunstwerk (Total Work of Art). After the controversy of the retrospective exhibition of his work at Gulbenkian Foundation (1970), the knowledge produced about the architect has expanded. However, there is no known research carried out on the transversal purpose of the activity defined by Raul Lino as “urbanistic architecture”, “Art of urbanization” or “valorization,” wich is the purpose of the research project, focused on the “meaning [of architecture] as a pattern of culture.”
