A Block to Future Memory
Located in Avenida Fontes Pereira de Melo, in Lisbon, in an avenue marked by the fragmentation of the construction, of the human connections or between the programmatic that do not take advantage of the best of the diversity in a modern city.
Our intervention seeks to bring together past, present and future in a block where its strategic position on the avenue may be the determining factor to consolidate an already existing "network".
Thus, the proposal has three main premises: a humanist vision, the need to connect the various fragments and a sense of historical continuousness.
In the humanist perspective, we intend to reformulate the pedestrian course, in an avenue where the cars have priority. We propose, then, an alternative route through the interior of the block that can continue inside the Palace Sotto Mayor and connect with Avenida da Liberdade, where human connections and comfort have a preponderant role, as well as relations with exhibition, stay or commercial spaces, promoting and adjusting the route to the human experience.
Cities are evolutionary and changeable "beings", buildings will be the organisms that will make progression possible. Therefore, we propose the restoration of existing buildings and their expansion, assuming the temporal architectural difference, but which will be standardized due to metric (of 7 meters) and materiality.
Conceptually, the proposal seeks a vision that temporarily transcends its time and constitutes a unification between the past and the present, giving the possibility of future continuity, both at the architectural level and human connections.
