The Beira Central Station in Mozambique is not only an iconic building of the country and the city, but also a landmark in the context of railway history, particularly in Africa.
Based on the language of the Post-World War II International Modern Movement, this project by architects Francisco José de Castro, João Garizo do Carmo, and Paulo de Melo Sampaio is considered one of the most important Portuguese engineering buildings of the 20th century.
This exhibition is an update on the work in progress as part of the Station’s conservation and maintenance project, funded by the Keeping It Modern program, an initiative of the Getty Foundation.
The project includes a team of teachers, researchers and technicians from the Schools of Engineering and Architecture, Art, and Design of the University of Minho (EAAD UM), in Guimarães, from the Faculty of Architecture and Physical Planning of the Eduardo Mondlane University, in Maputo, and from the Mozambique Railways, in the city of Beira. Elisário Miranda is the exhibition curator.
