Outstanding design for 09FDIP project created by Spaceworkers as an exhibition design space in the Portuguese city of Lordelo. For more images and architects description continue after the jump:
A building that needs to dialogue with the city. An organic block, which gently lands on a square … A kind of constant sensory challenge that appeals to the discovery, experimentation, to a new way of experiencing this amazing city.
A space where the physical boundaries of the site are diluted in the geometry of the shape and permeability zones created by the balance sheet, reinforcing the desired fluidity of the surrounding urban space.
The building looks like a massive form, modeled on the basis of foreign relations to enhance, easily seized at car speed and able to stimulate the curiosity of passersby, in a constant game of seduction between “show” and “hide”.
The interior is thought of as a kind of continuous functional spiral around a huge central void, exploring an idea of transparency, diluted in a lacy structure (suggesting the branches of trees in a dense forest), making the perception of different spaces possible and be a constant invitation to the movement and the discovery of spaces that are visible.
