Descrição: Hospital architecture in Portugal at the dawn of Modernity: identification,characterization and contextualization is a research project that intends to globallyand systematically study the phenomenon of the Portuguese hospital architecture,from the end of the 15th century to the middle of the 16th, and to propose methods ofdissemination and valuing this patrimonial typology. The hospitals, having constituteda network due to the social role that they played in the society and because of thearchitectural particularity of having allied a strongly functional aspect to the aestheticcomponent, are a very relevant object of study. However, the theme of medieval andmodern hospital architecture is practically unheard-of in the context of Portugueseart historiography. For this reason, there is the need to study subsisting specimens,their architectonic and artistic characteristics, their patrons and architects, and
theirrelationship with other architectural typologies.
