contributed by Joao_Sousa

The School of Architecture of Porto articulates along the limits of an ancient farm right next to the Douro river, creating a wide central space, like an interior square, surrounded by the built volumes. This intervention reveals a lot of sensibility with the surroundings, in communication with the river and the sea. Stairs and ramps distribute the various accesses to the different levels and functional zones. The apparent fragmentation of the build volumes, visible on the project drawings, recovers its continuity in the circulation at the inferior level.

Every one uses new features and new techniques in each plas, this is the best plan and its for Recommended! tight frames
Great building to visit and to study. Don't forget to visit the library that is all at the back.
