The Rowing High Performance Centre in Pocinho is located in one of the most beautiful and idyllic valleys in the world - the Douro valley - one of the places of choice for champions of this sport. The project is structured into three key components: Social Zone, Housing and Training. The entire project fuses with the reinterpretation of two secular elements of landscape construction in Douro Valley: the walled terraced, a recurrent form of "inhabiting" this place, and the great white volumes of large production units, deployed along the terrain, are formally complex and diverse volumetrically. Architecture: Alvaro Andradre Coordination: MPT Client: Vila Nova de Foz Côa Municipality Contractor: Manuel Vieira e Irmãos Lda Area: 8000 sqm Photography: Joao Morgado - Architecture Photography
