Site Location

The architectural and urban design project for Rua do Passeio Alegre and Rua das Motas described an alteration to the project by Arq. Bridge Nunes.

The five duplex units with a garden claim a dialogue with the scale and dominant typologies of Foz Velha. The connection between all buildings is made through the parking lot. The duplex on the roof over Passeio Alegre projects the extension of the external area in the interior facing south with a view over the interior area of the Douro River.

The competition for the ecological power plant puts Taiwan at the forefront worldwide in the field of renewable energies and the search for futuristic solutions capable of responding to environmental requirements.

RESSANO GARCIA ARQUITECTOS PROPOSTA TAIWAN VISTA AEREA edited

Ressano Garcia Arquitetos was the only European team among the five finalists. The jury considered, on the whole, that the excellent presented constitutes a reference for the environmental future.

PANELS 7 8 SECTIONS

130 hectares of a protected landscape area, the design proposes a new topography that expands the available space, allowing the new natural gas plant to coexist with renewable energies, the human activities – economic and leisure – of the local community, and the environmental protection.

PANEL 1 2

In the context of the global debate on the dependence on fossil fuels and the transition to renewable energies, the environmental future requires new solutions. The proposal of Ressano Garcia Arquitectos focused on the connection to the site and the community, presenting a design that integrates the mega structures of energy production and the territory in an innovative solution that deserved the recognition of the international jury.

The building makes use of low-tech construction systems with local materials, with tech and contemporary materials spread worldwide. Global and local, tradition and innovation found a good balance in this project.

To achieve a reduction of CO2 emissions, local knowledge and high-tech solutions succeed in lowering environmental impact and energy efficiency through a symbiotic relationship between the architecture and the surrounding ecosystem. Whitewashed walls, exposed beams, recycled materials, cross ventilation, water treatment system, use of solar energy, and local solutions are combined in a consistently committed to sustainable design.

Cutting-edge technologies that provide accurate information regarding thermal and lighting comfort influence the use of materials and design strategies in search of optimal behavior. Shading, thermal, and lighting are among the topics that reduce energy consumption.
