dc.description.abstract
This dissertation investigates the work and industrial thinking of João Filgueiras Lima – or simply Lelé (Rio de Janeiro, 1932 – Salvador, 2014) – within the context of the seven state-owned factories for precast building elements that he founded in Brazil over the course of 30 years of intense manufacturing activity (1979-2009). It aims to explore three interrelated levels of his architecture – factories, systems and components – as they constitute the fundamentals of his constructive approach, in terms of both conception and production. From the perspective of the architect acting beyond the scope of the designer, manufacturer and builder, this study seeks to portray how Lelé broadened the discipline throughout his practice. In view of an inconstant notion of industrialization – which would affect the way his precast plants were organized – it is argued that Lelé incorporated a strong manual dimension in his modus operandi. Thus, his compromises and convictions were paradoxically centered upon the combination of crafted and industrial ways of producing the technical object; ways that might prove less expensive and more efficient, given the community-oriented use of the structures concerned. The reason for conducting this study on Lelé is to re-evaluate his contribution through the prism of the operationalization of prefabricated architecture in a wider context; this will bring into question political, economic and social issues as determinants in his manufactured work.
