The Cockpit is the first professional project of Team 4. Constructed between 1963 and 1964, it consists of a shelter. This Cockpit, situated on a peninsula overlooking the mouth of the River Fal is posed by the team as a true architectural object clearly organized, where integration is allied with a poetic and highly effective management architectural forms and materials. As a complex polyhedron crystal, the structure breaks the surface of sloping ground and look toward the sea like the cockpit of a plane or a boat.
