Urban Context

Porto, Portugal Porto is the second-largest city in Portugal, after Lisbon, as well as one of the major urban areas in Southern Europe and the capital of the second major great urban area in Portugal. The urban area of Porto, which extends beyond the administrative limits of the city, has a population of 0.7 million (2011) in an area of 189 km2 (73 sq mi), making it the second-largest urban area in Portugal. The Porto Metropolitan Area includes an estimated 1,4 million people. It is recognized as a Gamma-level global city by the Globalization and World Cities (GaWC) Study Group, being one of five cities on the Iberian Peninsula with global city status, the others being Madrid, Barcelona, Lisbon and Valencia.

The Urban Fabric in Porto

consists of a variety of civic architecture from its succeeding periods. The Romans occupied the Mouth of the Douro River since the 8th century BC. Then came the arrival of Germanic tribes in the early 5th century, and in the early 11th century it was firmly established as Castilian realm. This land has been so much desired throughout History that it has allured settlers and ultimate ruling from other countries around Europe. Now Porto is a jewelbox surrounded by a beautiful ocean and river, filled with architectural treasures with stiles ranging from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, neoclassical and modern.

The Getty Center

Precedent Analysis The Getty Center

Los Angeles, California 1984-97

Was selected for the analysis of a large program in a museum setting.

Architect: Richard Meier & Partners The Center is located on a campus of 24 acres (9.7 ha) on a 110-acre (45 ha) site in the Santa Monica Mountains above Interstate 405, surrounded by 600 acres (240 ha) kept in a natural state. The site cost $25 million. The top of the hill is 900 feet (270 m) above I-405, high enough that on a clear day it is possible to see not only the Los Angeles skyline but also the San Bernardino Mountains, and San Gabriel Mountains to the east as well as the Pacific Ocean to the west. (”Getty Center”)

The Getty Center is a wonderful place to visit. The program layout is successful in creating desirable public spaces and strategically located private areas within the design. This project showcases fantastic gardens that serve to enhance the architectural surroundings.

The Center ultimately opened to the public on December 16, 1997. Although the total project cost was estimated to be $350 million as of 1990, it was later estimated to be $1.3 billion.(”Getty Center”)

Overall it is a successful design that speaks to its context. The volumetric formations speak to the hill site on which it is located on. The design expresses a developed language of its own through the integration of circular formations within the gardens and buildings. The Getty Center stands as a monumental figure at the top of one of Los Angeles Hills. Claiming a place in this city as a great work of art in itself.

Architectural Museums have a monumental role in serving and educating society. They are charged with displaying mankind’s elegance and grace through the evolution of their own design. Great Architecture is a statement of its place and its time, and possess the potential of making history in their own existence. 11

Casa de Arquitetura - Porto, Portugal

Site Concept Activating the Urban Fabric Through Site Design of the Senses Listen and Observe the site-it has a presence. This design exercises an eďŹ&#x20AC;ort to acknowledge the presence and life-force of its site. The intuition of the senses and transmission of energy from the site gives form to the design. This design aims to create a desirable communal gathering oasis where all members of the community feel welcome and are encouraged to gather and activate the space. Design Strategies Include: 1. Connecting the Main City Park to the Ocean front by drawing the park through and into the site allowing for an extension of the park within the site 2. The site lies between two distinct communities where a socio-economic divide exists. This project aims to bring together both communities by mending the divide through a powerful and positive architectural statement. The new public space will address societal barriers head-on by providing a desirable democratic place for people of all socio economic backgrounds to interact and engage, allowing for a more diverse and integrated communal environment. 24
