This project series contains reproductions of drawings and photographs displayed in the exhibit to document the Antas neighbourhood, in Porto, Portugal.
The exhibit text explained that:
... the SAAL Brigade intervened at the heart of an urban area which then became subject to redevelopments after the construction of the first units. The original proposal and the completed phases contrast the scale of later operations and change the perception of the original project. Nonetheless, the architectural design addressed a difficult terrain, and maintained the specificities of the urban 'ilhas' (islands) by incorporating a vernacular character, which the residents appropriated and transformed even further overtime. (The SAAL Process, Housing in Portugal 1974–76)
The project architect Pedro Ramalho worked for SAAL/North with Aires Pereira, Augusto Costa, Francisco M. Lima, José Lencastre, Lídia Costa, Pedro B. Araújo, Teresa Fonseca, Vítor Bastos and the residents' association Antas, that was founded on Septermber 1st, 1975. The first phase of the project included 32 dwellings and the second, 50 dwellings. The operation began in October 1974, with a construction date in October 1975.
This project series contains reproductions of design development drawings, implementation plans, axonometric views and photographic material. The original drawings and photographs were produced in 1975 and 1976 and were reproduced in 2015 for the exhibit.
