HONOURABLE MENTION
TEJO’S METAMORPHOSE: ALCÂNTARA’S GARE OF THE OCCIDENT
Universidade de Lisboa -
Faculdade de Arquitectura

Due to the fragmented impact of Alcântara’s infrastructures on Lisbon's urban mobility, the Gare do Ocidente interface is developed as a dynamic architecture for exchanging lines and means of transport. This vertical element, projected for the riverside area, follows the line of thought of the Archigram group and acts as a parasitic body housed in the support pillars of the board of the 25 de Abril bridge. The platforms: Alcântara-Ar, Alcântara-Mar and Alcântara-Metro are inserted into the transshipment system between the Sado, Cascais and Metropolitano lines, the interface being both a trading mechanism between different quotas and a mixed-use concentrating hybrid. This public transport hub celebrates the imposing and historical presence of the 25 de Abril Bridge in the city of Lisbon and introduces new lookout spaces with views of the city and the estuary. The consolidation of the urban fabric through the structuring of the means of transport dispersed, pushes the recentralization of Alcântara in a privileged setting of proximity to the river.
