Campo das Cebolas by João Carrilho da Graça
Updated: Nov 16, 2019
Last week Lisboa Architecture Walks & Trips took an in-dept look into the requalification project of Campo das Cebolas by the architect João Carrilho da Graça. A remarkable intervention!
More successful than previous projects undertaken by Lisbon’s municipality, the intervention in Campo das Cebolas gives a new meaning to spaces which were once reclaimed to the river but became obsolete.
The project transforms a fragmented territory into a coherent urban entity, providing a clearer understanding of a place with an exceptional location and a very rich historic narrative.
Combining form and function as one, the intervention provides the area a renewed purpose and geometry, capable of bringing people back to Campo das Cebolas, and to improve the relationship between the City’s old river shores and the present ones.
The second phase of the project will focus on the requalification of the “Doca da Marinha” in the southern side of the Avenida Dom Afonso Henrique. It is expected that it will successfully link Campo das Cebolas to Praça do Comércio and the new Lisbon’s cruise terminal.
