Águeda Modern Azulejos

Or, Tactile Tiles part 2. We visited Águeda to see a project of my father’s, and came across some interesting surprises. The town’s architecture is in bad shape, but underneath the grime and stupid 80s and 90s additions there are gems to be found – like these modern barrel-shaped azulejos covering the whole ground floor of this office building. The black linear thin pieces make them graphic and bold, and the bulbous white horizontals are perfectly mitered at the corners with deep returns. A glorious naive modern composition.

If only we could get rid of those doors and signs.

Águeda.
