Cruise Terminal of Porto, located in Matosinhos, was designed by the Architect Luís Pedro Silva and opened in 2015.
This project had two main objectives: improvement of the commercial efficiency and a better urban integration.
Inspired by the jetty's curve, the building is in the form of 3 main exterior tentacles and a fourth falling inwards, in a helical ramp. The exterior arms lead and connect different functions and levels. Inside, the succession of internal functions organizes the space, where the arch, the materials and the light construct a singular unity.
