LANDSCAPE URBANISM - PROJECTS - SUSTAINABILITY IN PROCESS

Location: Caparica, Lisbon

Phase: In construction since 2008

Size: 8ha

Design: Landscape Architecture

This project is a long term plan for the recovery of a 8ha Scouts School Camp situated in the coastline of Caparica in Lisbon. The vegetation has been degrading due to the public interventions in the coast line and the invasion of infesting species. This plan predicts the regeneration of the vegetation, through the "construction" of protection green corridors, with strongly maintained and planted, leaving the rest of the area to regenerate naturally. A nursery is provided, for the replantation. There are also punctual interventions in terms of delimitations of pathways, and protection areas, and an infrastructural upgrade in terms of lightning and firefighting. All the interventions are planned and designed to be constructed and developed by the scouts themselves during the camps.
