I think that architecture books usually contain information, either graphic or written (in the form of text), which is generally very centered and focused on the architectural object itself, a building or a garden, sometimes benefited from someone's critical eye - I am talking about your typical monographs on architecture or landscape architecture.
The book "Termas Romanas de São Pedro do Sul”
João Mendes Ribeiro
Coimbra, October 6th, 2021
The book "Termas Romanas de São Pedro do Sul" sums up the work done: it collects texts by archaeologist-historians, the architect and the landscape architect, sketches and photos that document the building's life and history. Its skillful printing and carefully curated materials make this book a timeless and rigorous publication. A book that is expected to survive the test of time, just like the project it documents.

The Termas de São Pedro do Sul photos document the transformation of the building and its surroundings, from the ruin taken by vegetation until the end of the rehabilitation project.

This work has several new things. It is the first time I photograph an architecture project. It's a building in a monastery I already knew, which has a very strong historical framework, and which will be adapted into a hotel by an architect I deeply respect, and he is my favourite architect.
Photographing the construction of the Lisbon Cruise Terminal

In this work, the city and the river formed a kind of frontier. The constant point of reference was the relationship between the new construction and Alfama on one hand and the Tagus on the other. It was within this territory and over this area of the city, with its two very visually strong parallel landscapes, that I moved for three and a half years.
