Museum Courtyards – Plantation – Coating
Throughout the entire process of developing the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation’s park, until 1969, there were two important moments in the design of the museum’s courtyards, one in 1963 and the other in 1966.
Later, in 1976, a project to recover the museum and Congress Courtyard took place.
This document is part of a set of technical specification documents [i] developed in 1966 by the landscape architects, referring to the proposed design for the museum’s courtyards.
In 1966, the proposal for the museum courtyards was completely established.
It is important to emphasize an evolution in the proposed designsince the first studies developed in 1963.
The initial proposal evolved into a more organic abstract design, defined mainly by inert materials and vegetation.
