In 2021, “Matter. The white conferences”, in partnership with Docomomo Internacional and the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto, among other institutions, celebrates the 100th anniversary of Mário Bonito’s birth (1921-1976), a modern architect from Oporto, linked to the inception of the renowned “Porto School of Architecture”, with a strong connection to cinema and active participation in theatre. Through a set of actions, we aim to discuss Mário Bonito’s lines of thought and multidisciplinary body of work, which we would like to expand and deepen through the pursuit of authorial readings on contemporary matters.
