Decompress amplifies the experience of public transition between the densely crowded streets of Lisbon and the expansive views from the hilltop site of São Jorge Castle. Its massive construction becomes thinner and less opaque toward the top of the structure. Various facade compositions are analyzed through physical model illumination studies. On the interior, conditions of lighting and humidity blur the visible appearance of defined edges.
