São João National Theatre Archive
The São João National Theatre Archive is located in a small lane behind the neoclassical building of the Teatro Nacional São João on Praça da Batalha. It sits in a narrow site between old town houses that form part of the UNESCO world heritage site. The façade is composed of singular slabs of polished white concrete, which sit at angles to define the storeys and articulate the openings. The building acts as an archive of all the theatre's props, costumes and sets.
