About the book

The architect Nuno Lacerda Lopes was invited to participate in the 1+1 Collection from the Uzina Books editor with two works from the CNLL, the Mouriz School House and the Valongo House.

The Collection 1+1 intends to disclose towards the general public, the current references of Portuguese architecture and other related areas such as design or illustration. In these small-format editions, where the layout intends to be direct in communication, we contemplate five distinct parts in the presentation of each work: text/author's intentions; Concept; Construction, Work and Technical Drawings of the project.

1+1 Collection already has names like Guedes+De Campos, Aires Mateus, Bak Gordon, Graça Dias+Egas Vieira, Jorge Mealha, Nuno Sampaio and Ricardo Vieira de Mello.
