A cycle of three visits to building sites in Lisbon. In the selection of projects are included public and private buildings, of different scales, phases and typologies.
Desterro Hospital (1591 / 2017)
Baltazar Álvares / Pedro Domingos, João Favila and João Simões.
The former N.ª Senhora do Desterro monastery remains to this day as an architecture landmark for the history and heritage of the city. After a long occupation as a hospital (between 1857 and 2007), the building will now be open to the city for a period of ten years. The first renovation (cleaning and demolition) work was conducted in 2015 and disclosed an extraordinary building, which now waits a second phase of structural reinforcement and adjustment to its new functions.
