Uma metodologia de intervenção em zonas históricas de pequenos e médios aglomerados (Portugal - 1978-2001)

PEDREIRINHO, José Manuel dos Santos Custódio - Uma metodologia de intervenção em zonas históricas de pequenos e médios aglomerados (Portugal - 1978-2001). Sevilha: [s.n.], 2011. 2 vols. - Tese de doutoramento apresentada ao Departamento de Urbanismo e Ordenamento do Território da Escola Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Sevilha, Universidade de Sevilha, orientada pela Arquitecta María Teresa Pérez Cano.

Through this work, the author intends to present a suitable methodology for intervention in historic centres of small to medium settlements. The starting point was the analysis of two settlements, Mértola and Guimarães, in order to represent two different orientations, based in national and international regulations, and setting the analysis in the context of the Portuguese practices over the 20th century, underlining the period from 1974 to 2001. The study reveals that heritage in historic areas entails an increasingly broad and diverse practice, requiring at the same time a great rigor in methodology towards the preservation and enrichment of heritage, and also for the improvement of living conditions in these areas.
