URBAN
THE PROJECT RESPONDS TO THE VARIABLES FOUND ON SITE IN DIFFERENT SCALES OF THE PROPOSAL.

ECOLOGICAL: SET ON THE ATLANTIC COAST, ON THE MATA ATLANTICA ECOSYSTEM, THE PROJECT AIMS TO BECOME A NATIVE FOREST RECUPERATOR.

NATURAL SURROUNDINGS: MORRO DO MARACUPU AND SEPETIBA BAY ARE FAR
AWAY VIEWS THAT BECOME A PERMANENT REMINDER OF THE MATA ATLANTICA.

NEIGHBORS: NEARBY THE COMPANHIA SIDERURGICA DO ATLANTICO IS THE MAIN ECONOMICAL/INDUSTRIAL SPOT. 2 BLOCKS AWAY IS A SCHOOL. RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS SURROUND THE SITE.

SITE: PROJECT SET ON SITE RESPECTING LOCAL PEDESTRIAN ROUTES AND AWARE OF SOLAR INCIDENCE. THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF PUBLIC SPACE (PARK) IS PRODUCED (SHADED AND UN-SHADED), AND THE SITE IS DIVIDED INTO DIFFERENT PARK SITUATIONS (SOCCER, CHILDRENS PARK, WATER BYCICLE AREA, ORCHID FOREST).

RECYCLING: THE PROJECT RECYCLES MATERIALS FOUND ON SITE (LIGHT POLES, COURT LIGHTING DEVICES, METALIC MESH, METALIC STRUCTURE), AND ALSO MATERIALS COLLECTED OFF-SITE (SIX-PACK RINGS). THE URBAN STRATEGY RECYCLES, REUSES AND MAKES PROFFIT OUT OF RECYCLING CONSTRUCTION WASTE.

ARCHITECTURAL
THE PROJECT INTENDS TO PRODUCE THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF PUBLIC SPACE WHILE DEVELOPING THE PROGRAM UNDER A DYNAMIC AND MULTIFUNCTIONAL FRAME. THE PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO BE CONSTRUCTED WITH PREFABRICATED ELEMENTS (CONCRETE COLUMNS, STEEL BEAMS, RECICLED METAL STRUCTURE AND MESH, CONCRETE SLAB) FOUND AT SANTACRUZ (COST, EFFICIENCY, CONSTRUCTION TIMES, POLUTION). IT CREATES VARIOUS URBAN SITUATIONS (OUTDOOR THEATER, VIEWING PLATFORMS, COVERED PLAZA, OPEN PUBLIC GYM). THE BUILDING IS AN EMPTY VOLUME WITH CUSTOMIZABLE FACADE CONFIGURATIONS. DIFFERENT FORMAL SITUATIONS DURING DAY AND NIGHT ALLOW IT TO BE EASILY REMEMBERED MAKING IT A LANDMARK AND MAXIMIZING THE IDEA OF “CENTER/PUBLIC BUILDING”. THE PROJECT IS DONE IN 2 STAGES:
1. THE BUILDING (WORLD CUP FLOOR PLAN CONFIGURATION) 2. THE PARK (FINAL ORCHID CENTER FLOOR PLAN CONFIGURATION)

SOCIAL/ECONOMICAL/ECOLOGICAL
THE PROJECT SETS UP A SOCIAL/ECONOMICAL/ECOLOGICAL BUSINESS STRATEGY THAT CREATES A NEW WORKING POSSIBILITY FOR LOCAL WOMEN AND THEIR FAMILIES. ORCHIDS BECOME A COMMUNAL AND PRIVATE FORM OF BUSINESS, AND REFORESTATION STRATEGIES CREATE CONSCIENCE TOWARD THE MATA ATLANTICA AND ITS SPECIES. THROUGH THE BUSINESS OF ORCHIDS DIFFERENT EDUCATIONAL, ECONOMICAL AND SOCIAL PROGRAMS OCCUR. FINALY REINSERTION OF NATIVE SPECIES IN THE PARK PROMOTE ECOLOGICAL REACTIVATION.
