MOMO in Faro

MOMO stands for Modernist Movement. As a candidate for the Portuguese Capital of Culture 2027, Faro wanted to present itself as the city of Modernist Architecture in Southern Europe. Faro has about 500 buildings with a unique modernist style that are highly adapted to the climate of the Algarve.

Unfortunately Faro was not "one of the last nominated candidates", but the result was a nice brochure with an overview of the influences of the Modern Movement in Faro from around 1925.
