The project Tagus Platform
The project Tagus Platform raises questions about how to think about the transformation of the city and port. Is it an opportunity for the city to reconnect with the river? Or is it an opportunity to urbanize land adjacent to the port city? Although at first glance the difference between these issues appears subtle, it is in fact what distinguishes one's approach to dealing with the process, and way of thinking. If the connection between Lisbon and its industrial port is the issue under discussion, the port land offers once in a lifetime opportunities to improve urban conditions and infrastructures in the old section of the city, to enhance public spaces and to find solutions for the needs of various maritime and port activities.
