The first event dedicated to Portuguese
Modernist architecture.

Faro has one of the largest concentrations of Modernist architecture in South Europe. Visionary architects, most of whom graduated from the prestigious Architecture School of Porto" (ESBA) came to the Algarve after 1950 and brought their own spin on Bauhaus and the International Style, reworking it for the Algarve environment.

They were inspired by the Modernist mouvement led by architects like Le Corbusier, Niemeyer, Frank Lloyd Wright to name a few. 


"We want to share and raise awareness of the exceptional

and unknown architectural Modernist heritage of Faro in Portugal !"

Who we are ?

We are Angélique and Christophe De Oliveira and we settled in Portugal in 2018, following Chris' Portuguese roots. We immediately fell in love with Faro and became promoters of its Modernist architectural heritage. We even wrote a book


In 2021, we launched The Modernist accommodation in Faro. With it, we created a unique architectural hospitality experience and became a reference in architecture travel in Europe. We have been featured in Forbes, Monocle, National Geographic, Elle Decor and Evasoes. 


Following our passion for architecture, we had a dream to gather others passionate for the first Modernist architecture weekend in Faro. Let's share the relatively unknown but significant heritage of Faro.
