Abstract

In the beginning of the 20 th century, industrialization was the origin of a lack of housing for those who were leaving the rural plural and heading to the city in search for work. The awareness of the increasing population and the housing crisis found an echo in the architects through the periodic Portuguese press dedicated do architecture issues. The magazine A Architectura Portugueza, issued between 1908 and 1929, published architecture projects and opinion articles that addressed this social problem. Since the architect’s social responsibility is reflected in their own projects, the analysis of the published works, assisted by the RIC project, is believed to provide an understanding of the stance of this professional class in this period.
