Port C

The building is set in a commercial port and hosts companies that run shipping cargo and logistic operations. As an operational center the building is organized in two sliding volumes in representation of a soft tidal movement. Docking and partial submerging brings out the idea and the sounds of big ships loading. Materials and textures reflect the naval construction across the mondego river, where welded metal plates and rusty cranes wait for the next new ship construction.
