landscape architect selected works
About me... As a passionate about design of green spaces, my interests pass through the interpretation of how natural and antropic factors combine to create landscapes at different scales, and how I, as a landscape architect, should act always in a sustainable and integrated perspective, combining scientific and artistic knowledge. I also crave to increase the population sensitivity for environmental concerns, and the importance of the landscape architectureâ€™s profession nowadays. The commitment and persistence to achieve the best results are marks that define my work: the art of designing with nature to build and manage the exterior space in the best way.
Jordi Bellmunt, Barcelona â€œ...I can confidently say that Daniel Oliveira is a dedicated person, extremely professional and responsible. He proved his ability and interest in landscape projects, its processes and transversal competences. I highly recommend him for any professional or academic experience in the field of Landscape Architecture.â€?

01 Levada’s park There is a need for intervention at the public space in the city of Rio Tinto and for consecutive years the river’s character (that gave the city’s name) was forgotten. This water course has been intubated in some sections of its route, conducting to unpleasant scenarios and putting into question the public’s health and the safety of the local population. The presence of water makes landscape, and attracts numerous advantages. The main goal of this project is returning the river to the population.

02 parc de la prĂŠ-histoire de casablanca archaeological park
This project presents the principles and the intervention strategies of landscape architecture in places with archaeological value, taking as practical case, the importance of archaeological parks as spaces of evaluative instruments of this nature, able to portray certain characteristics of past environments and scenarios. The main goal of this work is to demonstrate that the archaeological and historical component of a site is worthy of attention and consideration by population. That should be analyzed and worked to contribute for success and development of a particular region taking into account the preservation and valorization of its identity character.

03 AVEIROâ€™S GREEN STRUCTURE masterplanning
From the previous study and analysis of the city of Aveiro, is intended to make an urban renewal area that will surround the future urban park of this city. Given its urban-rural transitional character, with the presence of a lot of expectant and agricultural areas, this proposal aims to respect the landscape character by applying methodologies and techniques that are presented as solutions to urban requalification.

AVEIROâ€™S EMPTY CITY
Aveiro is a city that suffers from a dispersed urban development, not cohesive, contributing significantly to the unbalanced distribution of public use spaces and a lack of connection between them. The objective is to create a proposal for urban design that mitigates the negative impact of road barriers, contributing to improve environmental quality of the town. The concept is to create an urban area where the spatial distribution of the various functions (trade, services, businesses, residences and green areas) coexist in the perspective of accessibility and proximity to population in several nuclei. Are proposed roads and bike lanes able to connect these nuclei.

The connectivity of the green structure is guaranteed by the role of the tree in the urban space and the presence of green road seperators.
05 bendinat residential park residential private park
This proposal, a residential garden for a private complex in Bendinat, Mallorca, arises in order to provide different areas and activities for various concentration levels of users. Examples are the spaces of rest, supported by a pool and shaded areas, or recreational areas that promotes active leisure and sport. Sustainability was also a key element for the space design through the construction of â€œRoof Gardensâ€?. The choice of materials and construction techniques contribute to maximize the terrainâ€™s permeabilization and the low maintenance too.

06 zoo de barcelona redesign
This redesign proposal arises with the need of changing the lions, giraffes and elephants’ spaces of Barcelona’s Zoo. The goal passes through the recreation of a type of landscape from the African center: the Sahel’s savannah. With the introduction of multi-species idea, visitors will have opportunity to feel integrated within a naturalized space that respects the physical habitat characteristics of these African animals. Safeguarding the minimal artificiality intervention in this space, is conveying the idea that Man will feel inside the animal space and not the inverse.

giraffes’ space lions’ space
In an area closely related to its surroundings, this project focuses mainly on the image of the garden as a symbol of culture of the place. Considered an ecological infrastructure, dynamic and fertile, this project is designed to: be productive; improve the placeâ€™s dynamic; valorize the vulgar and recycle the existing; minimize intervention and maximize return; contribute to self-healing nature of the site and enhance the landscape as a living and non-static element.

08 rio tinto & tortoâ€™s tourism promotion spatial planning
The strategy involves the exploration of the Enotourism concept taking advantage not only of the theme wine, that is immediately associated with this region, but also a set of services and activities. These aspects will enhance the attractiveness and the recreation of local population providing sustainability, ecological and landscape integrity as well as the development of the economic region. The different points of interest are connected by thematic routes and a variety of different pathways.

09 DOURO RIVER AND ITS VINEYARDS recovery strategies
The territory of the “Upper Douro Wine Region” is a classified area, integrated in the Douro’s Valley, which is already considered as World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 2001. It is the oldest regulated and demarcated wine region in the world and is an important historical document that depicts the changes in the landscape. Many of these changes, have a strong landscape and ecological negative impacts that are still verified. The objective of this proposal involves the interpretation of the influence of some adopted policies and propose new models of management and landscape design in an integrated perspective. For this, it is explored the concept of visual strength in reading the valleys and ridges of the landscape of the Douro’s river.

10 “GAMP” GREEN CORRIDOR green corridor
The GAMP (abbreviation of Large Metropolitan Area of Porto), is a territory composed by an unconsolidated urban mesh and urban green structure. The aim of this work is to connect the urban city of Porto, including the Rio Tinto’s watershed, as a structuring element of an ecological corridor. This proposal wants to enhance the quality of life of the local population through the design of a corridor that aims to solve the weaknesses and biological discontinuities existed in this space. At the same time, this will increase the quality of this landscape.

11 Lourinha park
Lourinha park is a public space that arises in a rural area with tradition but at the same time in a zone that has been influenced by the modernization and human pressure, the city of Rio Tinto. The concept is to make Lourinha a space that can combine pleasure with productivity and biodiversity and where user intervention is the proper management of the space.
