Urban Limits and Continuities | Qualification of Infrastructure’s Idle Spaces

*Master’s Degree Final Project

CAMPOLIDE | LISBON | PT | 12500m2 2011|2012 | TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF LISBON | FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE This work consists in a reflection about urban systems which arrange the city and how the global decisions transform the dynamics of the local spaces. That reflection is materialized in an urban and architectonic proposal for the area of Campolide, which relates to the existing infrastructure – highway and railway. Taking the urban Infrastructure’s Idle Spaces as a purpose, a critical reflection is developed about the rationalization of network organized cities, which, based on the importance given to these circulation systems, gave origin to new concepts of scale, distance and time, conceiving a city that stands on individual spaces-time. Facing an uncharacterized city, where monofunctional urban spaces that disintegrate the urban complexity – and, by consequence, the people - are promoted, the challenge consists in developing an intervention that transforms these results in collective opportunities, contributing to the wealth and humanization of the cities as places for gathering and social exchanges. The explored topics are therefore the guides for the definition of the place and the program of the intervention project, which constitutes a Swimming Pool Complex and a Multipurpose Space, which seeks to give a practical answers to the needs of its nearby surroundings, and simultaneously to the city of Lisbon.

And the continuity of the process is crucial. Continuity is life. LERNER, Jaime – Acupuntura Urbana. 4ªEdição. Rio de Janeiro: Record, 2010. pp.38 Original quote: “E a continuidade do processo é fundamental. Continuidade é vida.”

02 BAMBOO SCHOOL | HAITI COMMUNITY CENTER Extreme Building on an Extreme Location PORT AU PRINCE | HAITI | 3200m2 2010 | TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF PRAGUE (CZ) | FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE With the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, when great areas of the country were devastated, and especially its capital Port au Prince, came the handle for the intervention ‘extreme building on an extreme location’. The first step was to choose the material, the bamboo, since its use in the construction of new equipments can solve the main local constraints: the deforestation, high probability of earthquakes and floods, and the thin economic resources. This complex consists of an area for bamboo learning and plantation, a dining area, while it is also a meeting for the population and a school (the project chosen for development).

03 AUDIO DIG | MUSIC SPACES Intervention on a Small Plot in a City Center

*Project Selected for the Top 20 works in the Technical University of Prague, 2009/2010

TEMPLOVA STREET | PRAGUE| CZ | 90m2 2009|2010 | TECHNICAL UNIVERSIT Y OF PRAGUE | FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE A challenge in the center of Prague, located in the axis of the Old Town Square. One of the main constraints and at the same time one of the starting points of the plot was its small area (90m2). Another key aspect in the design of the project was to develop an individual program. The chosen concept proposes an alternative way to see, hear, feel and play music. Due to the small size of the plot, the project develops inevitably in height. Following the idea of a massive block, several music boxes were placed at different levels, like small digging niches, whose dimensions were thought for the use of certain instruments. The different shapes and sizes of the Music Boxes create different projections on the exterior facade. Natural light is explored in order to create the underground feeling, emphasized by the contrast of materials between the wood (with acoustic proprieties) on the interior of the rooms, and concrete on the outside.

Multi-Housing Blocks in the City | Dealing with an Existing Old Building AJUDA | LISBON | PT | 6200m2 2010 | TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF LISBON | FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE The project is located on the plot of an old mansion, built in the end of the nineteenth century. The plot is presented with two different levels, being borded by two roads, one of them being the main axe of the neighborhood. With this in mind, the housing block was located on the opposite side of the plot, leaving this direct connection with the main axe to connect for the spaces intended for commerce and recreation. The solid housing block is characterized by recesses along its volume, respecting the areas imposed by the program, so that the volumetric proportions of the pre-existing building are kept. There are also two courtyards designed in its interior, which are at the same time the entrances for the two buildings of the housing block. This way, all rooms will be provided with natural light and cross ventilation.
