Landscape architect Júlio Moreira tells us about his professional activity, from his intervention in the 2nd Exhibition of Portuguese Design (1973) to the projects that demonstrate his concern for sustainability and landscape conversion.
In connection with the public availability of its documentary collection, donated in 2011, the Art Library conducted an interview with landscape architect Júlio Moreira.
In the library’s reading room, the landscape architect discusses aspects of his professional activity, which began in the 1970s when he wrote the book O mundo é a nossa casa (1973), in the context of the 2nd Exhibition of Portuguese Design, highlighting projects such as the conversion of the Boba rubbish dump into a green urban space for leisure and socialising (Amadora, 2002-2004), and the design of the first cemetery garden in Carnide (Lisbon, inaugurated in 1995).
