Preliminary Draft – Main Views

One of the requirements of the tender  was to explore visual and continuity relations at various scales, between interior and exterior (building and park) and between the exterior and interior (park and building), as well as the visual relations between the park and the surrounding area. 

Landscape architects António Facco Viana Barreto and Gonçalo Ribeiro Telles therefore defined three types of relations: 

From the exterior to the building;

From the building outwards;

Interiors of the park.

The first two categories are not only related to the definition of views but also to the creation of a set of constructive solutions that establish this continuity, such as:

– The museum courtyards and the Congress Courtyard;

The roofs of both the parking lot and gallery for temporary exhibitions and the Congress Courtyard.
