urban park | castelo branco

june 2016

an urban park should provide a "break" in the urban space by promoting contact with nature without having to travel outside the city. however, its urban essence should also allow an 'active participation' in the life of the city through a comprehensive, diversified and complementary program.

starting from the construction of a necessarily small but biodiverse and sustainable ecosystem, the design of the urban park seeks to explore the most interesting situations of a safe and comfortable interface between city and nature.
