Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Historians 'incredulous' at plan to demolish arcades in Bolhão market




Porto, May 25, 2020 (Lusa) - An international group of historians have declared themselves "incredulous" and "disappointed" at a decision by Porto city council to demolish arcades in the Mercado do Bolhão, the city's main market, describing it as "inconceivable" that "such negligence" should be allowed.
The position of the International History Students and Historians Group (IHSHG), which has approximately 1,400 members including students, professors and archaeologists from all over the world, is expressed in a letter that Lusa has seen and which was sent to Porto city council and the North Regional Directorate of Culture of (DRCN), whose opinions were the basis for the authorisation by Portugal's Directorate-General of Cultural Heritage (DGPC) to alter the project for the refurbishment of the market in a way that entails the demolition of the arcades.
In the letter, which is signed on behalf of the IHSHG by its president, João Viegas, the group express their disappointment at the decision to demolish the arcades, saying that they were "incredulous" that the council had authorised "this destruction of heritage" in the city.
"Bearing in mind that [national] Law 107/2001 of 8 September clearly defines the purpose, concept and scope of heritage, and in Article 49, points 1, 2, 3 and 4, prevents demolition unless the preservation of the 'greater good' (which is not clearly the case [here]) is at stake," Viegas writes. "It seems inconceivable to us that they have allowed such negligence."
This is, he stresses, a matter of national heritage "that will be eradicated forever, thus 'stealing' a piece of history from all Portuguese."
The Mercado do Bolhão was classified as a Public Interest Monument in 2013, and its restoration and modernisation work was given the official go-ahead on 15 May 2018.
Although the municipality claims that the arcades are greatly deteriorated, the IHSHG letter notes that "there have already been architects who have pointed out that the reinforced concrete slab is in perfect condition to support [them], thus allowing its recovery instead of its total destruction."
In the letter, which has also been sent to the parties represented in Porto's Municipal Assembly and to the president of the local parish council of Paranhos, the group asks who the architect was who assessed the reported "high state of degradation of the metallic elements and the concrete slabs" and requests to see the study that was carried out.
It also asks if a budget has been drawn up for restoring the arcades and how this cost would differ from that for their destruction.
Among other clarifications, they also question why, in view of the law on heritage, "the council continues to insist on the obliteration of a piece of Porto's history" and whether there is the "possibility/will" to modify its decision and hear different opinions.
On 18 May, the DGPC said that it had given the green light to the alteration of the Bolhão project, with the new whose construction method to involve the demolition of the arcades. In justifying its decision, it cited the high degree of degradation of the metallic elements and concrete slabs.
In reaction to this decision, the architect Joaquim Massena, author of a project to refurbish the market, criticised the "sad history" of the Bolhão, saying that it is only comparable to the demolition of the city's "real" Palácio de Cristal - which was replaced by a modern concrete dome - and criticised the demolition of arcades whose reinforced concrete slab, besides being "in perfect ... condition to support [it], is part of the history of reinforced concrete and prefabrication in Portugal."
On 20 December 2019 Porto council announced that work to renovate the Bolhão, which was to have been completed in May this year, would be extended for another year, due to the need to change "the construction method" to one involving the demolition and total reconstruction of the upper arcades, whose condition, according to the municipality, "was, after all, much more serious than it was possible to ascertain from the preliminary studies."
