This is not quite a museum: it is a warehouse you can visit, where many decoration and construction materials from Porto architecture are kept – stuff like tiles, stucco or cast iron. It is almost as if the memories and the identity of Porto streets were collected in physical fragments. Porto City Hall’s Bank of Materials gathers, restores and preserves materials from decaying or condemned buildings, with a view towards eventually giving them back to the city.
