Iron as an architectural and urban language in the city of Lisbon
Keywords:Morphology, Built typology, Architectural language elements, Public space language elements, Iron
With the merging of industry and art in the 19th century, cast iron emerges as a growing process in the construction and ornamentation of cities. This industrialization process was decisive in the diffusion of type characteristics, influencing the transformation of the city with new languages, shapes and scales. This study aims to build a drawn synthesis that characterizes iron as an architectural and urban language in the city of Lisbon. The study intends to constitute itself as a graphic tool representative of this material application in the built urban fabric, defined by elements of architectural language and stylistic elements of the public space. The identified elements seek to translate the diversity, composition and repetition of situations present in the universe of study, characterized textually and graphically in a comparable way with synthesis drawings on identical scales.
