Quarter for the Post Office Workers

Luanda [São Paulo de Luanda], Luanda, Angola

Housing

This quarter is a work from 1968-1969 by Fernão Lopes Simões de Carvalho, with the collaboration of Lopo de Carvalho, using the expressivity of exposed concrete in a lively volumetry which gives life to a long block of collective dwelling for employees. It is in the modern brutalist type of the 1970s stressing the concrete structural forms emphasized by the dark and light of the empty and filled parts of the construction.
