MATOSINHOS MASTERPLAN

The park aims to be an element of agglutination of different programs acting as a hand or nerve centre from which a multitude of fingers stretch out in an attempt to reach the whole intervention area, absorbing other smaller capillaries and thus becoming an element of transition. The nerve centre, represented as the "palm of the hand", results from the crossing of two main axis, creating a nucleus of great importance to the intervention, restated by the position of the metro station, resulting in a Great interface of flux and connection.
