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.
