Ozadi Tavira Hotel in Portugal by Campos Costa Arquitectos

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Article source: Campos Costa Arquitectos

Rehabilitation is a medical term that refers to the dynamic global process oriented to physical and psychological regeneration of the human being. In architecture is associated with the critical process to find the essential elements which are to remain, those that must be removed and new ones, prostheses, which may be added. This intervention follows two options: the archaeological recovery by mimesis with the past and the contemporary statement by comparison with present realities. The goal was to search for a balance between existing and contemporary. The building was designed in the 70s and has features that I was interested in keeping and which influenced the design of the new elements. I perceive the buildings not as static elements but as living structures that interact over us and that are part of the experience both at the program level or its aesthetic expression.

Here there isn’t a dreamlike inspiration. The process is little linear and the final design is the result of several moments of the project with several intersections with the client.

Article source: Dominique Perrault Architecture

The Albi Grand Theatre is going to transform the texture of the city as well as its cultural influence.

This building appears as an outstanding architectural symbol, on the outskirts of the historic centre.

We have given priority to the presence of the Grand Theatre instead of the cinemas, in order to organize around it a network of public spaces and of cultural facilities. The Grand Theatre will be its centre.
