The design of the Campanhã Intermodal Terminal (TIC) is  dictated by the confluence of three fundamental accesses:
– The Bonjóia node – the main traffic generator – which makes  connecting the Terminal to the Internal Beltway;
– Rua do Pinheiro de Campanhã, which establishes a  road link between the Terminal and the urban area to the west  from the railway, through Rua do Freixo;
– The pedestrian tunnel that gives access to the railway, metro and  urban area of Campanhã.  The design of the Terminal is also guided by two dimensions  determinants: quota 65 – the most adequate to establish  a connection between Rua do Pinheiro de Campanhã and the  Bonjoia; and elevation 60, which corresponds to the tunnel floor  pedestrian under the railway.  The good articulation between these two quotas allows not only  a good integration of the Terminal with the original orography of the  terrain, but also a good right foot on the lower floor of the  Terminal, where several support services are located  passengers.
The project is divided into two parts: a base constituted  by walls, platforms, pathways and landscaped areas, interconnected  underground to the railway station; and a volume  high – “cover” – to protect the boarding area  and closing of the Reception Building.
The base walls will assume a character closer to the  topography than building; The high volume will be  characterized by a concrete structure where it becomes clear  the structural principle: longitudinal beams, of greater section,  that support transverse beams, more slender. This structure  defines a large pergola that covers the outlet area and  passenger drop off and the support building and which alternates  open areas, shady areas, areas covered with material  translucent (polycarbonate) and opaque areas.  At the southern end, the building gains more expression,  accentuating its urban presence and marking in a  unambiguous Terminal input.  
At the north top a system of large gargoyles  ensures the drainage of a significant part of the roof,  directing the water towards a system of gutters  that ends in a water line integrated in the spaces  landscaped exteriors.
