workshop introduction

The Alentejo and the Alqueva region have recently constituted a case study for few design studios (Master and Ph.D. level) that took place at the Department of Architecture of ╔vora University. Collaboration with other Universities focusing collaborative research upon the Alqueva landscape, have also taken place: with the Accademia di Architettura di Mendrizio and with the Department of Landscape and Environmental Planning, UCBerkeley. The event that is now proposed in a form of an International Workshop with conferences and an optional previous field trip in Portugal enhances preceding collaboration with the IUAV and the partner Institutions of the network. The success of the VENEZIA Workshop realized in September at the IUAV with an attendance of 80 students created the seed for further research in the theme of tourism, landscape, and marginal city regions.

 

workshop programme

Territoriality is the perception we have of the power exercised by an individual or a group in a given geographical area. It is more cultural than physical. In the same territory, there may be many territorialities. The workshop enhances the discussion in how the notion of territoriality can be embodied with a new tourism praxis in a territoy of low density as is the case of the Alqueva region in Alentejo.

The Architectural programme proposes the development of an architectural concept and project for the design and realization of an observation, control and interpretation centre of the Alqueva region and dam construction. The client is the EDIA firm, the official Alqueva management company. Associated to this program, there is the need to design a small hotel in an area just close to the dam.

Alqueva is today seen as a landscape that needs to be broadly studied, not only as a cultural phenomenon, a product of history and aesthetics, but as well as a territory that may suggests new forms of habitation and of permanence within its boundaries, and in relationship with a larger network of territories that may share similar values. All this should be thought in the dynamics of “tourism” in order that the concept of “tourism” itself could be reinvented and enhanced by the poetics of architecture.

Despite this program, the goal of the Workshop, along with the conferences from invited speakers is to reflect upon the challenges that this landscape poses, and if possible to articulate it with other similar regions. Architecture and architectural strategies are the intellectual methodologies to achieve that.

 

the goal

The Alqueva dam became the largest artificial lake in Western Europe with its 250 square kilometres after the filling of it new water shed in 2002. Its construction begun in 1976 and today constitutes an important infrastructure for water distribution in the Alentejo arid region. However, what remains today of the previous memories of this area is a sense of incompleteness, an incomplete trace of property but also a challenge to architectural thought to rethink and to reconstruct the place identify at light of contemporary needs for a cultural sustainable heritage. Touristic practices can no longer be seen as isolated cases of success particularly in a south European context which holds a shared notion of history.

 

the region

The Alentejo region is one of the best-preserved landscapes and one of the least populated areas of southern Europe, making this territory a unique venue. Its vast open country is home both to tradition and contemporary culture. The sense of beauty is found almost everywhere, from whitewashed villages, craggy outcrops to undulating plains peppered with cork oak and olive trees. It occupies almost one-third of the area of Portugal, with an Atlantic border of 182km and other with Spain where the Guadiana river flows.

 

the location for the workshop project

The two areas chosen for the development of the workshop are located at the nearest of the Alqueva dam. The two areas should be seen as part of a larger system that is currently managed by the official Alqueva management company, EDIA. The challenge is to unify the area responding to the great visibility that this space has been having by foreigner tourists and nationals. Located in a splendid natural setting, the EDIA company wishes to develop an Observation and Dam Control Point with all facilities including a museum that could illustrate the evolution of the construction as well as, to monitor the impact of the dam in the cultural and social landscape.

The other area is located just two kilometres away in a gentle peninsula just facing the water level of the Guadiana river. The design should encompass an hotel accommodation and rehabilitation of an old farm house located at the site.
