Team 10: Debate and Media in Portugal and Spain


JOELHO 10 (2019)

Team 10: Debate and Media in Portugal and Spain

Guest Editors: Nuno Correia, Pedro Baía, Carolina B. García Estévez

For issue nº10, the journal Joelho will be published in association with the International Conference «Team Ten Farwest: Critical Revision of the Modern Movement in the Iberian Peninsula, 1953-1981», which will be held in FAUP - Porto University School of Architecture, in 28-30 November 2019 — the year that marks the 60th anniversary of the last CIAM Meeting of 1959, in Otterlo.

For the preparation of this Conference, two preliminary meetings were held, where several contributions of Portuguese and Spanish researchers were presented — in Guimarães, December 2017, and Barcelona, June 2018. These different historiographical perspectives were centred on subjects like the protagonists, the processes, architectural works, urbanism, and representation; from anthropology to cinema, from pedagogy to research, from architectural language to theory, from housing to tourism, from image to criticism.

Joelho 10, guest edited by Nuno Correia, Pedro Baía, Carolina B. García Estévez, proposes to deepen the knowledge about the means of diffusion in the Iberian Peninsula on the ideas coming out of the Team 10 meetings held in Europe between 1953 and 1981.


Proposed articles to be published in Joelho 10 should be focused on the following topics:

Debate — A series of meetings, exhibitions and congresses took place in Portugal and Spain in order to discuss the housing problem and the growth of cities, thus reflecting the debate that was taking place in Team 10 meetings, even when the main theme of those events was not the debate produced by Team 10 itself.

Media — In general, architectural magazines were one of the main medias to spread Team 10 message. Both in Portugal and Spain, different kinds of periodicals kept giving news of the debate generated in those Team 10 meetings and publishing the works of some of their protagonists. However, publications in all forms are suggested for further exploration and debate, such as: architectural magazines, books, manifestos, television shows, radio programmes or documentaries.

Protagonists — There are also many groups or individual personalities who helped to spread and criticize Team 10 ideas and projects. In order to frame the reception and diffusion of Team 10 ideas through Portugal and Spain, it is suggested to recover the influence of the most important contacts between Iberian protagonists and Team 10 members.


— We welcome full papers in English, up to 4000 words, APA style, which should include the title of the proposal article, the footnotes and an abstract with 250 words.

— Full Articles will be blind peer reviewed.

— Proposals must be submitted in Word (.doc format) in the Joelho website:

n. 9 (2018): Reuse of Modernist Buildings: pedagogy and profession

Reuse of Modernist Buildings: pedagogy and profession

Invited editors: Michel Melenhorst, Gonçalo Canto Moniz, Paulo Providência


Joelho 9 integrates a set of events organized in the frame of the European Erasmus Project, ‘Reuse of Modernist Buildings’ (RMB), where scholars and students develop new pedagogical and hands on methodologies to take the challenge of adapting the huge building stock produced in the 20th century.

The educational research on the Reuse of Modernist Buildings will support the design of a
new curriculum to train architects on the methods and tools on how to transform buildings and urban areas that were planned according to the modern concepts. To frame the pedagogical approach, Joelho presents and discusses the professional production that offers the best practices on RMB.

The call for full papers opened Joelho to international contributions on the topic that give interesting scenarios on projects and pedagogies in different regions. These contributions were balanced with invited authors that presented their well- known proposals. This was only possible, due to the collaboration of several reviewers that supported the selection of the papers.

Special thanks to Michel Melenhorst, the coordinator of the RMB project, and Paulo Providência our collegue, for the coordination of this outstanding issue, that in not only a theoretical reflection but also an operative tool.

Joelho 9 also presents the 2nd RMB Workshop “Coimbra Modern City today: from functional buildings to community spaces” that joined students and teachers from five European schools in Coimbra during one week, April 2018, in the Santa-Clara-a- Nova Convent

The Reuse of Modernist Buildings dialogues with the artistic approach of Miguel Palma, an inspiring reuse of images of modernist objects (cars, airplanes, boats, bridges) in provoking collages.
