Swimming pool, open competition, Porto (Portugal), 2015
Architects : Martin Le Bourgeois & UHO
Extended team : Federico Coricelli, Arnaud Mazza & Roberto Raimondi
Our proposal for this public space in Porto consists in a regular 1% slope. The slope starts underneath the Eiffel bridge and ends in rocks, 500 meters further.
In terms of declivity it closely resembles a random beach on the Atlantic. We expect it to have a similar quality in terms of occupation, hosting anything from informal commerce to runaway love affairs.
The beach, public space par excellence.
