ALFÂNDEGA DO PORTO

Part of the customs house in Porto with its massive cast iron doors and slender temple of the winds columns. The beam is a real I-Beam made of riveted metal plates. This would predate Post-Modernism by more than a century – except here, the scale is right. Tracks on the floor enabled carts to go around with the goods to be inspected or securely stored.
