Alvenaria Social Housing Competition Entry in Lisbon, Portugal by fala atelier

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

 Article source: fala atelier

The competition sought a new identity for the “Alvenaria” neighbourhood in Lisbon. After many years of indifference, a single intervention was required to resolve the whole site while bringing it back to the present.

The proposal did not intend to encompass all the volumes in a static solution. A module was defined, a cube of 2.55m, and the variations and multiplications allowed the dwellings to develop iteratively.

GNRation in Braga, Portugal by Atelier Carvalho Araújo

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Article source: Atelier Carvalho Araújo

The intervention in the former building of the GNR (military police) brings together all the concept of dynamism of Braga European Youth Capital 2012. The project uses the concept of occupation as motif. The occupation by man and nature. It explores the boundary between an abandoned existing structure and a new invasor construction who takes over the space. A space in constant regeneration, rather than a final object.

Maritime Museum Extension in Ílhavo, Portugal by ARX

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Article source: ARX 

The codfish aquarium connects two other buildings and sets and a complex built ensemble, united around the subjects of the sea and fishing. In this unusual structure, the Maritime Museum is the place of memory, the Aquarium the space for marine life and CIEMAR, installed in the old renovated school, the research center for the activities of man linked to the sea.
In articulating these three units the building is both an autonomous urban equipment that relates to the context and defines a public space, but it is also a building-path, which develops in a spiral around the tank as it connects the Museum to the old school.

BAKERY in Oporto Gondomar, Portugal by Paulo Merlini

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Article source: Paulo Merlini


Highly motivated by our personal motto US IS MORE, our main concern is to create spaces that give people the right stimuli, positively influencing their homeostatic levels. This is a concern based in the notion that we´re the product of an evolution. As such, we focus on the knowledge of the human body, mainly on the brain response to exterior stimuli.

We believe that if we can correctly control the stimuli that enters the brain, we can influence the state of mind of the user, making him happier.

Entrecampos Masterplan in Lisbon, Portugal by PROMONTORIO

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Article source: PROMONTORIO

Built next to the campus of the University of Lisbon, the Entrecampos Square is the largest urban regeneration scheme under development in Lisbon since the Expo’98. Like so many other cities in Europe, Lisbon has been loosing inhabitants to the outer rings of the metropolitan area. In addition to macro-scale factors, like the declining birth rate and the persistence of rent-controlled contracts, the cost of housing in city centres has become prohibitive for young people.
