Description 

In response to the international competition launched by Europan 12 - Porto Brandao | Almada, the intention was to promote a reference territory, creating an attractive and dynamic place for everyone, enhancing its water front location and proximity to Lisbon, in order to improve the local attractiveness, across the river from Lisbon, and revitalizing the flow connection between the margins of this territory on a broader scale. The concept emerges from the desire to create an urban area that lives 24 hours a day, a new way of living with great intensity "24h Experience". The goal is to provide Almada of several facilities (hotels, casino, pools, concert halls, urban park) with the ability to polarize the flows of existing tourism infrastructure today only focused in Lisbon. The intervention is designed to establish a new approach in relation to the Almada Riverside, with the creation of a water front of excellence changing the existing industrial image of this forgotten territory and enjoying the magnificent landscape - Lisbon. The integration of the existing natural elements was key in the development of the project, as a new way of intervening with minimal impact.
