The AGV Design Contest, promoted by the Alstom company, requested coming up with a concept for the TGV in Portugal, according to the country's culture.
A nation cannot be defined by a single image, and Portugal is not an exception. From north to south, it provides contrasting landscapes and diverse people. With distinctive expectations, people are our inspiration, and the concept leads to the creation of two customized environments: theta and delta.
The Aquila concept is based on colours and shapes fromthe Alto Douro vineyard and the Alentejo plains. Through an intimaterelationship between concept and functionality, a project arises where thecountry's unique features are made available in unique way.
