The CIM (Mouraria Creative Hub) is a hub for creative activities hosted in an ancient building complex situated in Mouraria, a historical quarter of Lisbon.
This building complex, with its origins pre-earthquake (1755) and even, what was considered to be Islamic origins, was in an advanced state o decay wen we’re assigned to design the CIM.
