The remarkable Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian complex, the outcome of a close interdisciplinary work between architecture and landscape architecture, was extended for the first time in the 1980s and is once again undergoing renovation. The proposal for Centro de Arte Moderna is inspired by ‘Engawa’ – an area sheltered under a canopy typical of traditional Japanese houses, considered neither interior nor exterior. This new element, a filter between building and garden, is a social space for visitors that adds a new way of experiencing culture outdoors. The park’s expansion to the south proposes a new landscape front with an urban forest, which at the same time redefines circulation and creates new connections to the city, as an invitation for visitors to wander and discover a secret gem at every turn: clearings and meadows, rain gardens, and small pavilions.
