Mestrado em Arquitectura Paisagista - Instituto Superior de AgronomiaThe interest for the subject, “Visual Analysis of the Landscape in the Municipality of Almada”, emerged from the perception that projects don´t generally meet the needs of the populations, but instead they meet the personal preferences of the designer. The aim of this work is to introduce public opinion as a tool in the design process. Although the general public doesn´t possess the technical knowledge, making the intervention of the designer essential, they do possess the practical knowledge of the dynamics, needs and the most valuable assets of the landscape that surrounds the areas where they live or work. As a case study I chose the Municipality of Almada, from which I took the seven most representative photos and then elaborated an inquiry to its population. In an inquiry, these pictures were to be ordered by preference by the inquired, asking them to make the visual analysis of the municipality and revealing what kind of landscapes they most and least like. It was possible to conclude that although the urban expansion engulfed the natural landscape, involving the population in an insalubrious environment, people still prefer landscapes with natural elements, like water or vegetation. Landscapes with cultural heritage are also of great importance, for they represent the identity of the population or of the nation itself.
