Visit to the Sacavém Fort

Returning to the archives in these unstable times is a joy for us! With all the precautions and security measures, we met at the Sacavém Fort in order to request support to identify the women architects who will have worked in the old DGEMN - Directorate-General for National Buildings and Monuments and the women architects whose work is listed in this archive.
We thank Dr. Alexandre Oliveira for his generosity and support and we hope to return soon!

We went to consult archives in Porto!

Between the 18th and 20th of November 2019, we moved to another city and went to the Porto institutions to consult their archives: we started at the headquarters of Northern Regional Section of the Order of Architects (OASRN) and then to the Faculty of Fine Arts (FBAUP) and the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto (FAUP). We thank those who received us so well: in the OA, Dra. Lígia Filipe Sampaio (librarian and archivist) and the architect Cláudia Santos (direction of OASRN); in FBAUP, Dra. Isabel Barroso; and, in FAUP, Dra. Teresa Godinho. We returned to Lisbon with new data, new questions and a lot of desire to continue!
