ENTRANCE FOR CASTELO DE SAO JORGE 圣若热城堡入口
2015 / Lisbon, Portugal 葡萄牙里斯本
For the new entrance to the Castle of Sao Jorge on top of the hill, a water garden is created for hiking visitors to linger and relax before their final arrival. The water garden’s floating structure, held by the site’s retaining wall, creates a descending sequence of light and dark spaces. Walking through the site, the water garden’s peaceful atmosphere is constrasted by the dramatic presence of its structure. The entering journey becomes an immersive experience through the topography, a dialogue between nature and the man-made structure.
