Study Center and Student Dorms

Master`s Project, E.T.S.A.M

Site: Porto, Portugal.

Year: 2011-2012

Porto is an heterogeneous city and its urban configuration too. The site is located in the center of the old town, between the urban park called “Jardín do Palacio de Cristal” and the north shore of the Duero River. This waste land has privileged location with breathtaking views of the river and the wineries of Vila Nova de Gaia on the other shore. The plot is formed by three fields each of them surrounded by tall stone walls isolating the site from the rest of the city.

The goals of the proposal are two: First, taking advantage of its greats views and location in the making, close to the University of Porto. The second is connecting the three plots between them and its surroundings, activating the place by generating new activities and make accesible and habitable this green area inside the city.
