New Lisbon Tower

Postby Paulo2005 » Mon Jan 17, 2005 2:32 am

Foster and Partners presented their proposal for the redevelopment of the Boavista district of Lisbon.

Lisbon is one of the worlds great cities with a rich cultural history and world class public spaces. The masterplan for Boavista shows ideas to continue this tradition and rejuvenate the district with a new quarter that promotes the worlds of design and the arts.

The site is located between the civic spaces of the Largo De Santos and the Parco Dom Luis, intersected with pedestrian and vehicular routes. The Foster design for the first stage proposes a new complex that mixes spaces for living and working with culture and leisure. This project could be a catalyst to promote the importance of design nationally as well as encouraging closer ties with industry. The neighbouring design school and a recent proliferation of design related stores already complement the proposals.

I like this one, the use of cylindrical form is executed quite well, I think that the Bristol glass will be a real design feature if the renderings are accurate. This design wouldn't work if there were less cylindrical forms.

How many stories is it Paulo?

Is it predominently residential or office or is it mixed?
