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.
Lisbon Cruise Terminal (2017) – João Luís Carrilho da Graça
Facing both the Tagus River and the slope of Alfama, this project presents a building created as a simple volume, therefore answering the purpose to release the surrounding area to the public. The building assumes itself as a pavilion, a system of transhipment, a floating volume, with breaks that generate tension zones and inflections that suggest the entry and exit ways to the building. A path/sidewalk surrounds the building, allowing for the slow discovery of the different façades. This path rounds off at the roof that takes the characteristics of a stage or square.
