SHIFTING LANDSCAPE A new Surf Route in Portugal
MetadataShow full item record
This diploma aims to investigate the possibility for a touristic surf route in Portugal and to develop a section of this route in Peniche, a region that shows optimal surf conditions but poor urban planning and lack of infrastructure. The project intends to modify the landscape by reshaping the dunes to serve as infrastructure and to lead people to experience landscape as a fragile, unpredictable and in constant motion system. The concept consists on a grid system of timber poles that create new dunes and generate program and spaces. These can grow, move and transform overtime depending on the sand movement. The path however, is a rational element that connects the city to the ocean and gives the users the possibility to interact with the dunes and the infrastructure.
