Modernist architecture, Lisbon’s landmarks
In the late 1920s, a new generation of architects was fully engaged in breaking with revivalist models, and exploring innovative architectural solutions which are still today some of Lisbon’s major landmarks.
Their practice continued during the following decade, until it suffered a setback with the neo-traditionalist taste imposed by Salazar’s dictatorial regime.
Walking along Lisbon’s enchanting avenues, we visit some remarkable modernist buildings by these architects, showing the transition from a decorative style / Art Deco to the aesthetics of functionalism.
