Plataforma das Artes e Criatividade (Art and Creativity Platform)

Print
In the area of the former municipal market an intervention project appears, transforming the market square into a place of contemporary ambience, as well as a new building, which is a succession of discontinuous volumes contrasting with the clarity of the square. The architectural language of the new building is radically different from its surroundings, covered with a grid of metallic profiles in brass, emphasizing the volumetric play. This sparkling image results in a complex embroidery of reflections, although probably that was not the intention of the authors. However, it is difficult not to bring to mind the richness of Minho's jewellery.
