Ava Architects. Porto housing. Portugal
March 17, 2010
The (re)designing of this part of the city had its starting point at the recognition of the significant permanence of the surrounding urban structure. The proposed building adapts by filling urban empty space, searching for an urban unit of new and old fragments, products of different moments. These fragments can never be ‘reduced’ to an immediate unit, but must coexist as parallel realities.
