Scope and Content

This project series documents the Arranjo Urbanístico para a Av. D. Afonso Henriques, the avenue is also known as Avenida da Ponte, in Porto, Portugal. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number 32/60. The office assigned the date 1968 for this project.

The project consists of an urban plan for the historic part of Porto's city. It was done in relation to the Edifício de Escritórios na Av. D. Afonso Henriques. In the 1940s, demolition created a rupture with the remaining buildings, including the Porto Cathedral. Since the 1950s, there have been several studies and proposals to rearrange this part of the city. Siza’s plan was the first to be accepted by the city council in 1968. The project consists of a new layout for the Avenue D. Afonso Henriques, the connection between the Luis I Bridge to the D. Pedro Square and the São Bento Railway Station. The intention of the project was also to reduce traffic. The project was not realized.

It is important to note that Siza also proposed a new design in 2001 for the Avenida da Ponte, which consisted of a museum, library, stores, parking, and houses. This project was considered his tribute to the Casa dos 24 of Fernando Távora. This scheme was not realized.

Documenting the Arranjo Urbanistico are studies and site plans. For correspondence, project documentation and drawings related to this project see project series Edifício de Escritórios na Av. D. Afonso Henriques, Avenida da Ponte AP178.S1.1968.PR02.
