Baixa Bar in Porto, Portugal by José Carlos Cruz Arquitecto

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

Article source: José Carlos Cruz

For years, Porto Downtown was a day-time zone. This was the civic center and  buildings were occupied by offices and commercial stores. The gentrification phenomenon made people move to periferic and cheaper zones, leaving housing buildings empty and a desert atmosphere at night.

Glass Bridge as Haizuka Earthworks Projects, 1997~2007

This project is located at Haizuka dam construction area and as one of Haizuka Earthworks Projects*. We are commissioned from Mirasaka town, Hiroshima prefecture, Japan to design guardrail and pavement for the newly large bridge over the dam lake in collaboration with local people.  As a result, we put over 190 sheets of glass panel(300×1800mm) to the outside of guardrail. Furthermore, collaborating with Japanese artist, Hiroshi Fuji, we design the glass panel as an Encyclopedia of living things in haizuka dam area. Therefore, “Glass bridge” is a project as landscape design, as a small museum, as a communication art, and as an architecture.
