Site Chapel _ Pessegueiro Island, Porto Covo, Portugal

an international architecture competition (October 17, 2018 - February 02, 2019)

 

OVERVIEW:

This international one-stage architecture ideas competition invites all architecture students, young architects and young professionals with a degree in architecture studies (≤ 40 years old) to develop and submit compelling ideas for the design of a Site Chapel located on the Pessegueiro Island, in Porto Covo, Portugal.

The Pessegueiro Island is a significant landmark and a place of great cultural heritage and historical significance where the remains of the ‘Santo Alberto’ Fort together with the roman archaeological remains are notable features within this setting.

When generating a vision for an intervention located within such a spectacular place, it is essential that each design proposal emphasises, respects and celebrates the site and existing ruins, while providing visitors with a unique experience.
