Chapter 2 of 24
'Smiling Lion', Carreiro De Tiro, Lourenco Marques
The first style - my most personal style, my most idiosyncratic manner, is "Stiloguedes". The section is of the 'Smiling Lion'. It is the section of a building I built for myself some 20 years ago, just round the corner from where we lived in Lourenco Marques in Mozambique. But it is no longer an architectural section. It is a section which is inhabited by various people and by certain buildings which are in this family of buildings in "Stiloguedes". The ground floor is occupied in the parking area by a naked lady, which I presume is my muse. On the first floor I lie next to my wife Dori. On the second floor there are three buildings: they are the brothers and sisters of the 'Smiling Lion'. The bakery, which I did for a bakers' co-operative in Lourenco Marques, and one building, an art club, Nucleo d'Art, which I never managed to build. Upstairs in the roof space are three of my assistants.
