The Bank of Materials – a bank capitalising on architectural heritage


The Bank of Materials is a museum open to the public since 2010. Prior to that, it was a reserve for saving Porto’s typical building materials from destruction, which it has been doing for more than 25 years, collecting and cataloguing them for research and giving them back free of charge to citizens for construction and building conservation, thereby safeguarding the city’s architectural heritage.
