Unlocking the private-led housing projects in Lisbon’s suburbia – a typological survey of everyday’s residential landscape
This project brings together researchers from the fields of urbanism, architecture and urban sociology. ‘Unlocking the private-led housing projects in Lisbon’s suburbia – a typological survey of everyday’s residential landscape’ is aimed at surveying and analysing the residential typologies that made a considerable part of Lisbon’s metropolitan fabric. The temporal and geographical focus of this research concerns the post-1940’s decades and the main suburban corridors west of Lisbon city boundaries. The research project builds on existing methodological framework already tested for public housing development in various Portuguese cities. New and relevant data are expected to be highlighted when observing, under the same lens, the private-led housing projects. Largely overlooked by architectural and urban research – often targeted at public-led projects usually associated with higher design quality –, these private-led housing neighbourhoods are the home to about half of the metropolitan population. Their acknowledgement as a research corpus is an unavoidable step to inform future policies on architectural, urban and socio-spatial qualification for these territories.
