On landscape and sustainability

Landscape architect Júlio Moreira tells us about his professional activity, from his intervention at the 2nd Exhibition of Portuguese Design (1973), to some projects that demonstrate his concerns with sustainability and landscape reconversion.


As part of the public availability of his collection, donated in 2011, the Art Library held an interview with landscape architect Júlio Moreira, in which he addresses aspects of his professional activity that 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. He highlights some of his projects, such as the conversion of the Boba rubbish dump into an urban green space for leisure and socialising (Amadora, 2002-2004), and the design of the first cemetery garden, in Carnide (Lisbon, inaugurated in 1995).

Interview in Portuguese. English subtitles are available.
