Minimal Modernist Architecture in Portugal

Retire in style. While the rest of the world is made to believe that Portugal is having a severe crisis (which may very well be the case), they are having a blast regardless. Portuguese architects are creating some really amazing modernist structures. At first sight, this ultra modern housing complex appears to be the perfect environment for young professionals but it is actually... an elderly home. The minimalist whiteness and sharp-edged modernity of Aires Mateus’ Housing for the Elderly stands proud against the rustic charm of Alcácer do Sal. An exceptional project by Aires Mateus.
