Pink Street: Rua Nova do Carvalho

Jose Adriao Arquitectos-Pink Street-More Than Green_1

“The gesture of painting a street in pink synthesizes in a very pragmatic and effective way the need for change. The Pink Street, in Rua Nova do Carvalho in Cais do Sodre, creates a dynamic public space, inclusive, opened and multifunctional which enables access to one of the most precious values of our time: information. The proposal aims to strengthen the character established with the previous intervention, giving it continuity and permanency. At Pink Street one produces, shares and consumes culture.

The proposal consists of leveling the sidewalk with the road so as to turn the existing space in a public space without continuous barriers. Along the street 8 MUPIS are assembled, which can be used for exhibitions (individual/collectives, night/day) or simple to advertise for events taking place. The 8 MUPIS can be used as lamps for street where information or advertisement contained no breaks the light. These lamps may change its tonality according to the character of the event they are associated with.”
