Marvila, which was once the strongest zone of heavy industry on the north bank, is today fragmented between recovered and empty blocks, and many industrial ruins. Here we find Matinha, a land that owes its name to the old Gás da Matinha factory, inaugurated in 1944. Before their industrialisation, these were agricultural spaces and this land was part of the Marquises of Belas property, one of the most productive of its time. With the removal of industry, the complex was dismantled, closed and unused for several decades. It is now awaiting the start of a huge transformation with an urban-scale intervention that provides housing, services, shopping areas and public spaces, in an ambitious project that preserves the memory of the old gas holders. #Void #Ruin
