Erik Nitsche: Amoreiras Towers in Portugal
Artist: Erik Nitsche
From mountain rivers rushing toward the Atlantic coast in northern Portugal ... to lush vineyards and cork groves flourishing among the mountain valleys, there is a balance between the various elements of Portugal's landscape and its architectural legacy. Just as the traditional architecture is in harmony with the natural landscape of Portugal, the modern architecture is in keeping with the busy cities of contemporary times. This artwork features the Amoreiras Towers (Torres das Amoreiras). Located in the capitol city of Lisbon, the building is made up of housing, offices and a shopping mall. The architect of the "Torres das Amoreiras" is Tomás Taveria. Born in Lisbon, Taveira taught architecture at the University of Lisbon and practiced architecture in Portugal, South Arabia, Arab Emirates, Macao, Angola, and Cabo Verde.
