Location: Aveiro, Portugal
Project Team: Carlos Dias
Project Year: 2013
This place is strongly marked by the presence of these edges which act as a barrier creating this empty island within the city of Aveiro. However, it presents great opportunities for expansion and transition from the consolidated city towards the peri-urban zone by extending the avenue “Dr. Vasco Branco” and connecting to the “Dr. Lourenço Peixinho” boulevard, one of the main structural axes of this city.
The concept aims to stitch the empty city to the consolidated city and thus create a new urban center with a new identity. The answer for a sustainable city is densification + greenification.
