Interview with architect Maria Manuel Godinho de Almeida

In April we visited the architect Maria Manuel Godinho de Almeida at her studio where we were able to interview her about her professional life and work. This interview was conducted in the context of the documentary Linha a Linha: Histórias de arquitectas lisboetas (Line by Line: Lisbon architects’ stories), by the director María Contreras, in partnership with W@ARCH.PT.

We thank the architect Maria Manuel Godinho de Almeida for her generosity and for the time she dedicated to this interview. We hope to meet each other soon!
