With its sophisticated beaches and rugged scenery, Portugal is a sunny paradise for many travellers. The natural connection between sun, shore and sea is particularly remarkable, although it is often overlooked. Despite this beauty, Portugal‘s capital - Lisbon - is a city which turns away from the water. This is a recurrent issue for waterfront cities in general. Many waterfront zones are abandonned due to seemingly inoperable areas. Moreover, many shore areas are restricted for public use and hence, they build a blocking to stunning water views. This visual barrier is why Lisbon‘s shore suffers from a lackluster facade and thus, decreased appeal. The aim of this project is to regenerate a shore segment. In light of Lisbon‘s great history in performing arts, specifically dancing events, this project will host a dance center. Particular attention will be paid to facilitating access to the shore and hosting shows outside. The challenge here is to make Lisbon‘s inhabitants and its visitors actively involved and, as a result, bring greater value to the city and its shore front.
