Inside Scoop into the Process
The Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary

The project for the Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary began academically integrated within the Conservation, Rehabilitation and Restauration and the Project Laboratory VI syllabuses held at the FAUD@ULisboa Master in Architecture. The following propositions were developed exclusively by me within an individualised framework which preceded the team project. These designs along with my colleagues were developed along with the refinement of the strategy itself and were submitted for appreciation to the congregation and even to Pope Francis himself, before the team started the design of the final version.​​​​​​​
