contributed by manecas

This is one of the key works for the revision of the modern movement in the CIAM, forcing a change on the key focus of the practice of architecture. Fernando Távora's architecture springs from his questioning of modernity, he sought to integrate local and traditional values, values that were more popular than erudite, as is the case with the Vila de Feira Market. Fernando Távora died on September 3 2005 in his hometown of Oporto, Portugal. He was 82. Founder of "Escola do Porto" (Oporto School), Távora was a teacher and lifelong mentor to Álvaro Siza Vieira and Eduardo Souto de Moura. From convents to markets to residential projects, all in Portugal, he sought to integrate local and traditional values within a modern vocabulary. Távora's most notable projects include the Quinta da Conceicao Tennis Pavilion, Vila da Feira Municipal Market, and the Santa Marinha Convent.
