Sagres Landmark


Sagres Landmark


In the past, landmarks were regarded as natural or manufactured places conveying information for navigation, longitude or latitude or such data. In addition to these criteria, landmarks convey symbolic concepts these days.

The Sagres site is situated in a special location that slightly guides the design ideas. From these exclusivities, one can notice the rocky nature, strong winds and the end of the world feeling. Since a landmark is a space with specific features, the sense of isolation in the visitors and having the least impact on the surrounding environment are the driving ideas behind our design. We think the sense of sinking and immerging into the ground opens a dialogue and provides an environment for isolation and thinking that integrates the sky, land and oceans without affecting the spectacle.

The visitors can navigate the routes with feeling different geometrical spaces and with walking the stairs toward the promontory, sinking to the ground, face distinct spaces that finally merge to the main cavern. The daily tiding cycle provides a route for exiting the landmark with boats that imposes the feeling of the integration of the land, sky and the water.
