Lisbon Second prize of the international competition


 In 1994, I invited Ricardo Boffil to participate with me in this design competition, following the excellent experience we had together in the Atrium Saldanha project ,also in Lisbon.


The sketches that we show here, are part of my initial research approach, wich was afterwards developed with another more refined language.


However remained the main concept, unlike the draft of Calatrava wich was built, putting the trains below and the great hall of arrivals and distribution of circulations on the top floor overlooking the river, where was the navette departure for the current airport.
