“Working with the 99%” started in 2013 as a project inside Ateliermob. In 2016 became a cooperative, with ateliermob as member. Continuing the work of aterlimob, the capacity to engender participatory processes on housing and urban planning is one of the pillars. At the same time, the capacity to get involved in public discussions around it as we believe the work of architecture is broader than the simple gesture of design in office.

Social and political engagement is inherent to architecture, the act of design is not neutral. It is our collective responsibility to think and act to fight for democratic territories. Working with the 99% is the idea that all have the right to architecture and to co-design the territories, against social and territorial segregation.
The project started with Prodac North and South, together with the neighborhood Associations in order to get the building permits of their houses, self-built by the dwellers in the 1970's and never legalized. Later, continuing our research on housing and pressuring needs it represents, as a result from our work in a deprived neighborhood in Costa da Caparica, a Community Kitchen was build as a start to discuss re-housing in co-creation with the inhabitants..
