Praça 2 de Maio
Competition - Public square renovation - Viseu - 2015
The roof is defined as a horizontal plan that organizes the square in two levels: under the roof, a fundamentally urban space, flexible to accommodate different types of social and cultural events; over the roof a contemplative space: a new garden where the water and the magnolias are the main elements.
The horizontal plan of the roof hides in its thickness the necessary infrastructure that serves the needs of the urban square and the garden.
The roof – in its two faces – offers to the city a space that is simultaneously urban and landscape, action and contemplation, movement and pause.
