We already know that Vodafone is one of the world’s leading mobile telecommunications companies with activities around the globe. Vodafone’s well publicized Portuguese headquarters is located on Avenida da Boavista in Porto (Oporto).
The Vodafone building was designed by architects José António Barbosa and Pedro Guimarães of Barbosa Guimarães Arquitectos. They came up with an original and bold design for this company. I was expecting that the building to be impressing and massive but I wasn’t expecting this design. It looks interesting and strange but in a good way.
It’s a modern design, both on the outside and on the inside. Of course the most impressing part in the shape. It’s an irregular but equilibrated structure. It’s a mixture of geometry related features and artistic features that when put together create an unique and very interesting structure.
It’s a complex and dynamic design that gives a sense of movement and excitement.The construction has 8 floors and 3 of them underground. The exciting shapes and forms from the outside can also be found inside. This way there’s a unitary image with no discrepancies. As the architects that designed it declare themselves, this building reflects the attitude and philosophy of Vodafone, which is based on the dynamic aspect of life.
