Lecture by Correia Ragazzi



Last Friday, the renowned Italian-Portuguese architecture studio Correia Ragazzi visited MArch to give a presentation through which they shared some of the most notable projects of their career, as well as their personal references and concerns.

Correia Ragazzi was established in 2005 by Graça Correia, trained at FAUP, and Roberto Ragazzi, who studied at IUAV before moving to Porto, where they currently reside and have their studio. In the presentation they gave, they talked about Graça’s connections with the Portuguese architect and Pritzker laureate Eduardo Souto de Moura, with whom he worked between 1989 and 1995, as well as the references from which they have drawn, such as Ruy D’Athouguia or himself. Alvaro Siza. They also spoke about the transdisciplinarity of the profession, citing creatives such as Robert Mapplethorpe, Fernando Pessoa or Laurie Anderson, as well as the importance of taking advantage of references that influence us, such as the case of Michael Jackson with Fred Astaire, or Picasso with Velázquez, Goya and Manet, and returning to architecture, by Schinkel and Mies Van Der Rohe.

Finally, they delved into some of their projects, such as the Casa Ricardo Pinto, the Casa em Valadares, the new church and parish center of Meinedo, which is the result of a won contest; the Quinta em Guimarães, the residential project, also the result of a competition, Marechal 720 and the Quinta de Velude, a very personal project in a privileged environment.
