More images and architect’s description after the break.

The railway complex served as a structuring element for development of the city, having been a source of employment and had, for decades, a strategic importance in terms of accessibility and trade. Over the years, with economic and social changes, the complex lost functions, and the revitalization of the area is imperative.

The strategy considers the introduction of new uses and places of interest catalysts of people and goods, taking as key points: matrix changeable, creative industries, networks and creative clusters.

The main problems are the lack of points of interest generating recreational and cultural activities, employment of local and functional and physical links with the city of junction.

“Peer-to-peer, commonly abbreviated to P2P, is any distributed network architecture composed of participants that make a portion of their resources directly available to other network participants, without the need for central coordination.”

Architects: Pedro Dias, João Matos, and Hugo Santos Silva. Landscape Architects: Ricardo Ventura, Márcia Vilar, Ana Marta Mota, Telma Sanches, and Diana Fernandes. Contributors: Vasco Fernandes and Rui Oliveira
