The Bairro das Novas Nações [The New Nations’ Neighbourhood] was called Bairro das Colónias [The Colonies’ Neighbourhood] until the Carnation Revolution. It was built during the 1920s and 1930s, filling a gap between the Bairro de Inglaterra and the Bairro Andrade, both built at the turn of the century. It stands in Lisbon as one of the most coherent housing projects of the Art Deco and Modernist styles. Its layout arises from the superimposition of an orthogonal grid parallel to Avenida Almirante Reis, with a series of diagonal lines that give rise to several detached corner buildings with shops and cafes on the ground floors. One of these stores used to be a bakery, but today houses the Antecâmara Gallery, an exhibition space dedicated to presenting art projects that somehow relate to architecture, associated with the CCA studio. Also headquartered here, Antecâmara Radio is a “radio project that utilizes sound to investigate and expand notions about the city and provide for a heterogeneous and non-confined meeting place.”
