contributed by Joao_Morgado

Between land and sea, along a strip of land in constant change with he passing of the years, human intervention has gradually settled into the most varied types of inhabitation. From the seventeenth century until now the superimposing of different intentions for this spot, the material and technological resources of the moment and availability of the inherited patrimony have all contributed to a succession of adaptations and additions. Notwithstanding this, the complex encompasses architectural units whose reading is unequivocal, units laid out according to still-clear organisational principals. The state of adulteration and decadence of one part of the complex is the result of a process of natural selection that the project design tries to turn to its favour. Identifying the elements of greater perdurability or greater poetic charge, the proposal reconstructs with, and out of, these a basic order that both encompasses the memory of passing time and makes a new use visible.
