This series tries to represent a possible narrative about the North, South and Felgueiras lighthouses and the public space surrounding them. I understand these 3 lighthouses not only as an equipment/infrastructure to support navigation delimited by enclosed space, but also as equipment that are architectural objects in the sense that they integrate public space and promote social activity. They are navigation and coastal protection infrastructures, but at the same time, the piers are also public space. The narrative tries to represent 3 different urban realities in articulation: the lighthouses, the piers and the human appropriation (terrestrial and maritime).
