The Bouça Estate is a project of social housing in Oporto, designed by acclaimed architect Álvaro Siza Vieira. The construction started 30 years ago and yet was only recently finished. The project was born in the community from surrounding slums that took their fate in their hands, demanding the right to a proper house in the same place where they had their roots, and preventing authorities from putting the matter to rest.
"Paredes Meias" was awarded with AICA Art Critics 2009.
