Study on a second Museum Courtyard

Throughout the process of developing the design of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation garden, up until 1969, two different stages can be defined for the Museum’s Courtyards: one developed in 1963 and another in 1966.

Later, in 1976 a project to recover the Museum and Congresses Courtyardwas carried out.

This sketch is part of the preliminary studies on the Museum Courtyards developed in 1963 [i] by Landscape Architects Gonçalo Ribeiro Telles and António Facco Viana Barreto.

In this sketch an altimetry and volumetry scale is defined at ground level (surface plan) taking into account the different views of the space as well as the creation of depths.

This sketch precedes another where these ideas evolve into a final drawing.
