THE GRAND PROJECTS

Architectural and urbanistic operations after the 1998 Lisbon World Exposition

Task 3 – Territorial Scope

For this task, the main sources will be the Riverfront General Plan of Interventions for Lisbon and the South Tagus River Arch City Plans. Thus, the research basis for this task will be the city of Lisbon, in addition to the cities surrounding the Tagus estuary.

The aim of this task is to understand the environmental impacts produced by the actions undertaken in the territories under study. The accomplishment of this task presupposes an incidence in the environmental studies, focused on the biophysical characterization of the intervened areas, namely: topography, structure of green spaces, orography and natural drainage systems, geology, hydrology, orientation and sun exposure.

Based on this study, it will be possible to initiate a broad debate on the environmental sustainability of the various urban and architectural projects, namely at the level of its implantation and design in face of the characteristics of the places where they were settled.
