  • Location: Rua da Bica
  • Primary workshop language: English. We will try to facilitate translation into Portuguese.

The steep inclination of the Rua da Bica provides very specific features that are reflected in great contrast caused by successive changes in the horizon and also by changes of light and the chromatic contrasts between the yellow of the elevator, the blue of the Tagus River and the neutral colors of the architecture.

A elevada inclinação da Rua da Bica proporciona características muito próprias, que se refletem tanto no enorme contraste provocado pelas sucessivas alterações do horizonte como também pelas variações da luz e pelos contrastes de cor do amarelo do elevador, o azul do Tejo e as cores neutras da arquitectura.
