Porto Riverfront

Included in the wider concept of urban requalification, the project for the new Waterfront in Oporto has in terms of project-scale a quite elastic approach: it moves with masterliness between the territorial and local scales in the both meanings of understanding the place, locality analysis, made in parts throughout the 3.5km length of the waterfront, and the projectual response.

The project underlines basically two aspects: at first the strategic characteristics of the solution, not easy to be concretized due to the great difference between the high number of projects along the waterfront, further reason to connect the project to mainly to a territorial scale; secondly, it demonstrates how the solution proposed, thanks exactly to its being related to the territorial scale, manages to find easily the impanation in architectonical and landscape scale projects.
