Monographic exhibition of Manuel and Francisco Aires Mateus, currently the undisputed protagonists of the landscape architectural Portuguese. The search for the brothers Mateus, mainly devoted to the issue of single-family homes, resulting in outcomes of great refinement and skill, united by their particular recognition that characterizes every project. The lightness, achieved by carving the matter with simple tricks and the adhesion between the design and construction, is the result of a meticulous exploration of the possibilities that the excavation of the material offers.
