This year's Grand SADI Winner, RTKL's Dolce Vita Tejo in Lisbon, Portugal, exhibits an innovative approach to the enclosed mall concept. In addition, the project conveys a true commitment to green principles. What ties the entire project together is one of the largest ethylene tetraflouroethylene roof structures in the world. The material allows sunlight to pass through while keeping heat out, enabling the center to make maximum use of natural lighting while keeping cooling costs low.
