The undertaking is structured into 3 important parts: Social Zone, Housing and Training. The entire task fuses with the reinterpretation of 2 secular elements of landscape building in Douro Valley: the walled terraced, a recurrent form of “inhabiting” this spot, and the great white volumes of large production units, deployed along the terrain, are formally complicated and diverse volumetrically.
