Parque da Cidade



location: Portugal
year: 2017
design: Tomé Capa


The city is faKE, it doesn't end and the mountain is far away.
The parks are like oasis in mountains of concrete. They are natural microcosms in the immensity of the city; And they serve as a mechanism for aspirating natural landscapes, such as the fields, beaches and mountains that exist far away. They are reproductions of plant purity. They're fake.
And the city is completely fake. We are pawns of the concrete heart that makes it work. But in our routine we need a break - and we try to breathe.
The city created the City Park so we can do it. So that we can escape from the orders of the city and find a place of ours and feel the real world, immaculate.
