Fluviário de Mora

Print
The Fluviário de Mora (Aquarium) is an example of how architecture can mark the social and economic territory. It is situated next to the Gameiro Ecological Park, and its success has redesigned the imagery of the Alentejo and has created a destination. Today, the Fluviário is one of the Alentejo's most visited public facilities. Through a pre-fabricated concrete porticoed construction, the building recreates the iconographic image of the typical construction of the "montes alentejanos" (Alentejo-style rural houses). Its interior is independent from this exterior structure and creates a space made up of a sequence of aquariums and a path of successive experiences.
