On December 20, 2019, under a rain and wind storm, we were received by the architect and researcher Luz Valente-Pereira at her home. It was a joy for us to end the year getting to know her and being able to interview her. Despite little known and the lack of recognition, Luz Valente-Pereira built a solid career as a researcher in the LNEC, from the 1960s to the end of the 20th century, presenting a vast publication of works that reflect critically from the scale of the house to the scale of the city and regional planning.

We thank architect Luz for her generosity and availability to welcome us to her home. Also to your husband for his support for the rigorous dates throughout the interview. It was a pleasure to meet her and we hope to see them soon!
