Team Ten Farwest
Critical Revision of the Modern Movement 
in the Iberian Peninsula, 1953-1981

Team Ten Farwest sets out to debate the uptake and assimilation processes of the architectural ideas of Team 10 under the critical revision of the Modern Movement in the Iberian Peninsula between 1953 and 1981. With this objective in mind, an International Conference will be hosted at FAUP – Porto University School of Architecture, from 28 to 30 November 2019 — the year that marks the 60th anniversary of the last CIAM Meeting of 1959, in Otterlo.

For the preparation of this International Conference, two preliminary meetings were held — in Guimarães (2017) and Barcelona (2018) — where several contributions of Portuguese and Spanish researchers were presented. 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.

The book “Team Ten Farwest: Guimarães 2017, Barcelona 2018”, published by Circo de Ideias, gathers the texts presented within the context of the meetings held in Guimarães and Barcelona, together with background notes from Joan Ockman, Łukasz Stanek and Dirk van den Heuvel.

Also in line with the International Conference, the issue n.10 of Joelho - Jornal of Architectural Culture, guest edited by Nuno Correia, Pedro Baía and 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.
