Olhão | Portugal
“Olhão da Restauração” “Olhão of Restoration” During the French occupation of the Algarve, during the Peninsular Wars, Olhão was notable for one of the few public uprisings against the occupiers, occurring on 16 June 1808. This revolt culimnated in the expulsion of the French from Olhão and, as a result, from the rest of the Algarve. It was during this period, that a month later, a small group of 17 men embarked to Brazil on a caique (a small sailing vessel) named Bom Sucesso, in the hope of promoting the Algarvean success to the Portuguese Court. The ing
crew brought the audacious

Residential garden (urban garden of proximity). Design of an urban garden intended for the daily leisure of the population that lives in the surrounding buildings. The place of intervention is located in the city of Tavira.
The exercise involves the analysis of the place of intervention (biophysical, social and cultural aspects). The ted tion
spatial distribution of a set with criteria, area of and volumetry defined by the
Subsequently, a proposal for intervention will be developed for this outdoor space resulting from the construction of the building in which was decided to keep the park accesseble from the back of the buildings.
RESIDENTIAL GARDEN 7
the projectâ€™s object to be develop is the open space located on the the left bank of the River GilĂŁo, bordering the consolidated urban network of Tavira with a communication axis of relatively recent construction. On the other hand, its surrounding has been progressively occupied by commercial areas and sports infrastructures, it is a terrain in an apparent state of abandonment associated to the condition of expectant space, of urban emptiness. The concept for this project was based on the salt industry present nearby the terrain but also in the need of a big green area accessible to everyone for all the outdoor activities.
The proposed exercise is a part of the project â€œUrban Rehabilitation and Environmental Valorization of a System of Public Spacesâ€? in the city of Faro. Its main goal is the development of strategies and proposals for a spatial and functional approach.
The approach reflects on the potential social and ecological services that this area can provide to the built environment. The concept consists in the appreciation of the cultural heritage present on the site such as the church, transposing its construction lines to the pavement lines, creating several visibly distinct living spaces in vegetation and function.
HISTORICAL SQUARE 11
This 100m flowerbed was designed with the aim of being the sustainable and low maintenance possible due to its owner demand of a low water need and a low impact on the existing morphology of the soil.
The design itself was made according to the existing counter lines, putting wooden bordes where a counter line should be to prevent the soil from falling. The vegetation chosen has low water need and is very common to the region, which means its resistence to possible dry periods is higher.
The soil cover material is as simple as can be with grey and why stone and pine slices to make it fit in with all the pines surrounding. Ultimately, the design process is based on the capicua principle, being the same color pattern from one side to another and vice-versa.

The present restoration is based on the known history of the Palaceâ€™s construction and its gardens, as well as the transformations that have been identified over the years. This garden defends its title of a baroque garden due to the numerous elements present in it such as its tridimensional axis-based geometry, trident, sculptures and fountains to punctuate space, existence of broderie parterre, water games, adaptation to the Topography and optimization of views and tree-lined boulevards marking the view system. As part of the methodology approached, it was tried to value, in a way, both known phases of construction, being the maximum goal to find the balance between both. However, if you have information that dates back to the 18th century (the Carvalhal Vasconcelosâ€™ family phase), a more targe ted restoration is proposed for this period, since it marks the emergence of the most important Baroque garden in the region.

RESTORATION PLAN 15
In order to know whatâ€™s best for the county in study and taking into a ccount the land planning process, after a gross analisis of the land itself, it was analyzed in more detail according to its abiotic, biotic and cultural factors. The result was a number of territorial units consisting in land with the same or very close characteristics according to the factors considered more importante, such as precipitation, landform, flora and fauna. One important aspect is the legal and physical conditio ning of the land in question.
In this case there are numerous variables to take in account such as the land exclusively for agriculture (in yellow), and conservation (in green), as well as the equipment and infrastructure already present (symbols). AUTOCAD
Some 3D work done with Blender. The exercises consisted in desi gning two different objects and inserting them together in a garden also made with the same program.
The first copy cat consisted on redesigning an old project plan with the same coloring style as the example selected, giving it a new life and aesthetic feel.
COPY CAT COPY CAT
The third and last copy cat consisted a visualisation a urban landscape that included a brick wall with a big building behind it, covered by trees and other elements.
The second copy cat consisted on on a visulisation of a green area with a wooden bridge as a central feature.
The task consisted on finding 3 visualisation examples with the purpose of copy cat it using multiple visaulisation computer programs, desconstructing the examples and achieving a similar result.
HOW TO 1st step: choose an old project to redesign
2nd step: choose a similar color pallete to the one desired 3rd step: choose a texture to apply in the desired colors and get a similar effect to the one desired
4th step: use the rubber tool to get the lighter effect on the water Programs used: . AutoCad . Photoshop SKETCHUP
HOW TO 1st step: make a 3D model of the wooden structure 2nd step: chose a background photo
3rd step: add elements and color filters to reach the disered effect Programs used: . SketchUP . Photoshop
1st step: make a 3D model of the brick wall and the building 2nd step: add the trees and all the other elements 3rd step: add the ground and the flowers with the stamp tool Programs used: . SketchUP . Lumion . Photoshop
