Good news back from Lisbon. The competition done in amazing collaboration with LOK and Joana Quintas received third price. Happy! Here is the jury report, the projects pdf is here.

Task was to find a strategy for a river valley north of Lisbon, close to the spanish border, to be used and appreciated as a natural corridor in an area recently devastated by forest fire. Along the river two of many decaying mills should be revitalized as focal points along the path.

One mill is the singing mill of Atalaia, the water powered wheel activates mechanical instruments when entering the space while at the same time conserving its historical function.

The author Thomas Bernhard liked to be in Portugal, he stayed in Lisbon and Sintra. We bathed on Praia Grande where a well known picture of him has been taken. He didn´t like his time at the Steinhofgründe in Vienna as much, staying there at the hospital that was planned by Otto Wagner and crowned by a church overlooking the city. Some impressions:
The hospital buildings are nicely embedded in a park like environment. I liked the facades, nice choice of material, color and order
The church has nice detailing, especially liked the ornaments and metal work.
Secondary side entrance to the church.
Ornament on corner column.
