“Architectural projects” is the theme of the collection of books created and published by Nuno Miguel Borges. This programme of publications unites architects, landscape architects, historians, archaeologists, academics, photographers and designers; together, they aid us in learning about and understanding the architectural project portrayed in each volume and the history that lies behind it.
Each book opens with a text about the history of the current place or construction to help contextualize the contemporary intervention. Next come interview(s) with the architect(s), in which they explain their project and the work carried undertaken in its implementation. Chapters with drawings, analyses or testimonials may arise in some of the books, depending on the nature of the project and the people involved. Then, a photo essay of the construction of the project: before, during and after, all captured by a photographer from a perspective which is far removed from a mere technical record. Finally, to close the book, there are the technical drawings.
Despite their common scheme, each book is unique: the specific result of the different people, the place and the architectural project. The books will be published at a gentle pace and in limited numbers, as the time to undertake an architectural project is lengthy; and author editing, a task with natural restrictions.
