Fishermen’s compartments in the port of Cangas de Morrazo

Jesús Irisarri y Guadalupe Piñera

FAD Award 2008  City and landscape
Description Technical file

These small storerooms for fishermen give rise to a building whose scale and insertion in the place generate a new public space and a unit that interacts with the landscape and ambient conditions. A building that brings together two aspects, urban presence and permeability in the landscape. Besides taking into account any considerations imposed by the type of location on which the construction was to stand, it was a matter of priority that the port should not cease to function. We therefore thought of a modular construction that could be manufactured almost entirely in the factory.
