Today’s episode (#78) – 20th January 2023: “110 Histórias | 110 Objetos” (“110 Stories, 110 Objects”) – “The office of Álvaro Machado”.
It is an entire room of a house at Avenida da República No.50, in Lisbon, that has been moved in its entirety to Técnico – Alameda campus (Civil Engineering Museum). The office of Álvaro Machado (1874-1944) was less than a kilometre away from the campus, but the process of moving took more than 65 years. The office is practically intact and its exhibition is a tribute to Técnico’s first architecture professor who taught Drawing from 1910 to 1934.
