Porto’s downtown is changing rapidly. A couple of years ago, the major part of its building were abandoned. These days, due to tourism and speculation, they are being reconstructed, fortunately. Nevertheless, I feel somehow this urge to record the city I was used to….

Quinta da Conceição: Swimming pool entrance (Alvaro Siza). This forms always intrigued me, since I was a little boy. I recall felling something special when coming to this place with my aunt and grandmother.

This afternoon, sketching next to the famous Lello bookstore at Porto. There was a huge queue to visit the interior of the so called “most beautiful bookstore in the world” or “Harry Potter bookstore”…

At Boston downtown, almost shocking lifestyle contrast, after two weeks in Utica! Loved this city, human scale, nice gardens and eclectic buildings…and sporty people, so proud of their Celtics team. Here, I used my beloved pilot parallel and muji sketchbook (Forgotten on my backpack for a while! )

Teatro Grande (Large Theater). This time the perspectives were supported by a little section, in order to better understand the rational roman exploitation of the natural slope for the construction of the auditorium.
