Porto - the city of futures

Following up on the 2004 Spring Conference of AIA Continental Europe, in Porto, where we had contact with a city that had begun with a deep process of modernization, we had visited several projects in execution that were anchored into the transformation of a peripheral city, and currently in the ranking of the 100 most visited cities of the world.

In an era when it was thought that historic cities would be doomed to simple tourist destinations, and that the economic and technological proponents would be of the new Asian cities built from scratch, Porto is an example that the urban centers of the old world are competitive.

SEE IT IN COPENHAGEN: Grundtvig’s church is by far one of the most recognizable churches in Scandinavia. It was built as a memorial to the Danish philosopher, pastor, historian and author Nikolaj Frederik Severin Grundtvig (1783-1872).  Be sure to check it out when visiting Copenhagen this spring at the AIA Continental Europe Conference from April 11-14.

AIACE Swiss Section Event Recap: Baldegg Monastery

AIACE Swiss Section Event Recap: Baldegg Monastery

The consequent joining of the classic cloister typology and the modern architectural vocabulary allows for a wonderful play of light and shadow over the precast concrete elements used throughout the interior and exterior. The extensive glass on the cloister garden facade allows sunlight to warm and brighten the regular interior. The cloister gardens soften and enliven the otherwise strict building plan. Perhaps the rhythmical repetition in the facade, plan and section underscore the clarity and calm of the Sister’s daily lives inside and outside of the cloister and chapel walls.
