Scope and Content

This project series documents the Conjunto Habitações, Remodelação de Duas Habitações and BAC – Banco de Arte Contemporãnea in Quinta da Palmeira, Evora, Portugal. While the records were held in the office's archives, this project was assigned the number 66/90 and was further divided as follows : 66/90 A/B Conjunto Habitações; 66/90 [B] Remodelação de Duas Habitações; and 66/90 C BAC, Banco de Arte Contemporãnea. The office assigned the date 1995 to this project.

These projects were commisioned as a part of Sociedade Hoteleira Do Arez's venture to maintain the historical zone of Quinta da Palmeira. Sociedade Hoteleira Do Arez contracted Siza to restore two existing houses, construct seven new houses to join to the Hotel da Cartuxa, and later, transform a warehouse building into an art museum. The BAC was not realized.

Documenting this project are sketches, studies, and plans. Photographic material includes photographs, slides and negatives of the project sites and models. Textual material includes project documentation, notes, meeting minutes, contracts, technical specifications, and correpondence with Câmara Municipal de Évora, Sociedade Hoteleira Do Arez, and the Gabinete de Organização e Projectos.
