I love the vastness of the space, the design is simple and bold. The attention is given to the graphics and the strong lines of the edge
fantastic backdrop… design wise i guess there’s very little complexity – still can’t think of many other places where to enjoy a spot of cycling… well done
great space, still with no linear transition trough some of the seaport areas. let us see how it goes as time goes by, that benches…
Nice Pictures and Video.
I did that cycle path a couple of weeks ago, really enjoyable stroll. As for the design: 5 stars! Love the bold fonts.
The location at the Tejo’s riverfront makes it a very nice stroll indeed. However, as Pedro said, there’s a lot of connections missing, and I have the feeling the designers don’t ride the bike themselves too often: if you take the whole tour from Belem to Cais do Sodre, you encounter some very dangerous places, sometimes the cycling path dissapears, strange curves (90° angels), cyclists still have to give way to cars…
It’s a very big step forewards for Lisbon, but it has still a lot of space to improve
