METAMORPHOSIS OF A PORTUARY CITY, SINES
COLLABORATIVE WORK - ARCHITECTURE VISUALIZATION
''In a context characterized by large logistics infrastructures and the maritime relationship with the city of Sines, the exercise aims to generate new spaces that emphasize and establish a new way of inhabiting this hybrid system between Industry and the City.
The project developed in the dissertation is part of the preexistence and basically involves three new interventions with the aim of resolving transitions between antagonistic spaces and making them complementary to each other. Thus, the coastal platform of Sines appears as a unique space of transition between land and sea. In order to strengthen the link between these entities, the proposal redraws a new coastline and establishes several quota links with this axis of transition, re-structuring the way this space is lived. That said, the project also aims to restructure a new port center, to combine all ports in a single space. In this way, the structuring principles of the set look for the adaptation to the site and the affirmation with respect to the city.'' - Paulo Reis, architect and project designer.
The collaborative work consisted on the production and re-mastering of the Architectural Visualization and final visuals of the project. The procedure passed not only by creating striking visuals, mixing both realistic and artistic approaches, but also by picking certain details in terms of materiality and atmosphere of the spaces. The technique used has been an on going development process based on light studies, manual layering and image manipulation, as well as a deep photo-editing.
