Caderno de Obra

Description

Caderno de Obra [Work Notebook] shows us the Teatro S茫o Jo茫o as an open work. Inventorying various elements, from early sketches to various renovations, it shows us how the building designed by Marques da Silva may be read as a dramatic work. To launch the second volume in our Cadernos do Centen谩rio [Centenary Notebooks] series, we have got together readers who committed themselves to the task of renovating it, at different points in the history of this National Theatre, namely Francisca Carneiro Fernandes, who presided over its board for a period of nine years. Joining her are representatives of our publishing partner, Instituto da Constru莽茫o, that also took part in the rehabilitation of the building鈥檚 fa莽ades in 2014: Humberto Varum, president of the board, and Esmeralda Paup茅rio, the book鈥檚 technical and scientific coordinator. From micro to macro, from various types of mortar to the sculptural elements in the fa莽ades, in a mixture of science and fiction, the Teatro S茫o Jo茫o comes before our eyes as a make-believe world for the first time. Amidst pictures and conversations (with architects Jo茫o Carreira and Siza Vieira), Caderno de Obra also offers a reading of the city in time, becoming thus a tribute to the theatre itself as a place from which to see.
