Camila Mariana Gonçalves Vieira da Rocha I’m an Architect and Urban Planner, graduated at the Architecture & Urbanism Institute, University of São Paulo, in 2012. Throughout the undergraduate studies I could perform undergraduate research in different areas: theory and concepts of landscape, methodologies and teaching practices of construction. I attended extension courses, such as "multiple uses of bamboo" and "earth construction" and community projects, such as Community Action, Rondon Project; and also symposiums, lectures and seminars on architecture. My training in informatics also allows me to easily understand and use new design software. I had the opportunity, with the technical course and undergraduate, to live in different work environments and gain experience in team working and search for solutions. Complete CV

an area in the city of Bauru

The creation of a public space in a consolidated urban area. An architecture that captures the people’s looks that pass by and invite them to come in. These were the principles from which this project started. With the idea of modifying the daily landscape, we have an area abandoned by government, a void in the urban center of Bauru / São Paulo / Brazil. Studying the city plan and public spaces that exists in the people's day-by-day, the implementation of this project begins articulating a path that creates internal spaces open to the city and connects buildings. A deviation from the sidewalk leads thru the project’s interior, where limits are not defined. The permeability in the "closed" spaces happens on the same stream without physical barriers, and visually inviting eyes to wander curves, identify shelters, to be inviting. The program begins on city's demand for social facilities. Wen we study the needs and the real effectiveness of activities that propose a "reintegration", which is imposed and demanding facing different realities of the population we want attend, the program proved quite complex. The homeless population need activities that are not only to their welfare. The main focus is create those spaces, especially with regard to free areas and proportions of the buildings, which do not arise as imposing and rigid. The buildings were designed so as not to cause a rupture in the landscape, but to be part of it. The vegetation that descends and permeates the ground between buildings, the ground floor's typology and curved roofs compose this landscape. The project is called Living Center, a place with a diverse program and that allows other activities can be undertaken in their spaces. A place that start from the idea of integration, in sports, in the restaurant, in the courses, but mainly in the space configuration, internal and external, for the socialization. This work was carried out in the ninth and tenth semesters of undergraduate course, individual I the course of Final Graduations Work (2012).

Movement Object Throughout the course the searching for architectural references I found that ones that most captivated my attention, like: the ideas of Acayaba, the use of wood and its connections; also, Calatrava's projects, designs full of movement; and Sergio Ferro's ideas regarding the use of local materials and labor force participation in the work, which instigate to imagine how do this collaboration and always thinking in design specifications according to the needs and availability of the site. The relation user-architecture, breaking the barrier between producer and receiver, the relationship with the environment and the insertion into the urban landscape are some of the guidelines that I consider essential for an architectural project. This object was drawn from the reflection on those ideas. Textures, colors and shapes, movement and materiality, techniques that best answers the proposed project. This work was carried out in the eighth semester of undergraduate course, individually, in the course of Final Graduation Work's Introduction (2011).

References Pictures on Panels This work consists in some panels with references pictures. It's the result of a survey conducted across architectural universe that encourage us to think and do architecture. This was a first search for concepts and ideas that would bring the basis for the development of the Final Graduation Project. This work was carried out in the eighth semester of undergraduate course, individually, in the course of Final Graduation Work's Introduction (2011).


Computer Museum

The Institute of Mathematics and Computer Sciences - University of S達o Paulo - has a museum with items related to the history of Mathematics and Computer Science, such as calculators, slide rules, old computers, etc.. However, the museum does not have adequate conditions for the exhibition of the collection. Thus, a study of remodeling was made, in order to expand its area, changes to glass furniture, and lighting improvement, favoring the visualization of collection and inviting people to visit the museum. In this project there was great use of the electronic model for meetings with the museum administration to discuss the best design of the space. This work was carried out during the internship in architecture between 2011 and 2012, at Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of S達o Paulo.

Urban Planning IV

This project consisted in the creation of a new neighborhood in an area bordered by the main access road to the town of S達o Carlos, Washington Luis highway, a large empty area, separated by a stream and bounded by two pre-existing neighborhoods. The proposal creates two main axes, one related to leisure and other to culture, with a preserved green area in the permanent preservation area around the stream, which brings people together through walk circuits, bike paths and living spaces, in addition to cultural and sporting equipment accompanying this axis. The second track, perpendicular to the first, connects the neighborhood by crossing over the stream. Trades and services are placed in this second axis, which will meet the new demand on site. This work was carried out on the seventh semester of undergraduate course, group, course in Project IV (2011).

Urban Planning II

This study was conducted in an area of the Mo贸ca neighborhood in S茫o Paulo. The research and analysis revealed a strong relationship between neighborhood and railway system, which was a strong guideline to the project. The project is based on the reconfiguration of spaces and the creation of new relationships. With a lot of abandoned warehouses and underused areas, the group proposed the construction of residences and commerce in a few blocks, remodeling and adaptation of a number of sheds for social housing, demolition of another shed for the opening of a drought square off the train station and the school of arts also proposed here, and also the reconfiguration of the east side of the railway line and the formation of a park with facilities for sports and leisure. This last element has an impact at the regional level and would be a breath for the neighborhood, since the area in which it operates is of great density and small common areas and recreational facilities, mainly in relation to nature. This work was carried out on the seventh semester of undergraduate course, group, course in Project IV (2011).

Light and Flow Instigating curiosity in a dark room through which the people's movement fires a circuit that switches on lamps arranged at various locations in the room. To more people moving, to higher frequency of lights on and off. At the same time that the action happens, a video camera captures images and reproduces via a projector on the wall, also adding the idea of flows and lights. This work was carried out in the seventh semester of the undergraduate course, with a group, in the course of Architecture and City Language (2011).


"Banal Places" Photography Sites identified as of little or no emphasis on the day-by-day looks. We seek to show it through photographs and compositions that can be created independent of the actual objective of the objects. This work was carried out in the seventh semester of the undergraduate course, done in pair, in the course of Architecture and City Language (2011).


Cultural Center Object made from a photograph of S達o Carlos Avenue (S達o Carlos - S達o Paulo - Brazil).

Collective Transport System Articulated buses

This project involved a survey and a study on public transportation in S達o Carlos, the identification of important points that could be placed on project and the design of a new line that would serve a wide area in the city. After the first studies, we designed bus stops at strategic points. We analyzed case by case, the integration between areas, intervention in an already consolidated environment and qualities that could attract to the site. After the structural and architectural design of new bus stops, the new challenge was the development of three stations, large equipment, for the embarkation and disembarkation of passengers and the connection between different lines. This work was carried out in the fifth semester of undergraduate course, in group, in the course of Project III (2010).

Comfort Study XV Novembro Plaza - S達o Carlos - S達o Paulo

This project aimed to improve the comfort elements of an existing plaza in the city of S達o Carlos. It has been found through researches and analysis some factors that don't cooperated so that the environment be a pleasant place to be, such as: solar incidence, noise of vehicles, distribution of equipment, among others. The group proposed some solutions, such as the construction of a acoustic shell in the center of the plaza, site currently widely used for cultural presentations, but without any kind of permanent protection, requiring the frequent construction of temporary shelters. The beds from plaza form barriers and limit the paths of pedestrians, then we propose the downgrades of some beds and the creation of wooden walkway to allow crossing and also the formation of internal livings, as in the connection between cafe, deck and beds. A research about available materials on the market that met the proposals of this project was carried out, which was according to the quality and sustainability of the facility. This work was carried out in the fifth semester of undergraduate course, in group, in the course of Environmental Comfort in Urban Space (2010).

Visual Languages

The work done in the course of Visual Languages ​entices students to communicate through forms, lines and colors. Initially, the study and interpretations that parallel lines can cause, as the depth created from a small displacement of a sequence of lines. Secondly, the proposal adds the object manipulation level. Creating a manageable folder, builds up from this relationship with the person who handles. According to the way the folder is opened, the relationship between the shapes and the phrase he brings is altered, instigating a person to want to change their way of closing or reading. These studies were performed in the fifth semester of graduation, individually, in the discipline of Visual Languages ​(2010).

Landscape Architecture - Gonzaga Park

Project and drawings of a park in the Gonzaga neighborhood, at S達o Carlos. In an outlying area of the city, on the edge of the neighborhood, in the highest part, this is a privileged area, overlooking a lush landscape, but abandoned, with a strong potential and a large number of people. It was designed a plaza with different items in its extent. With seating areas, observation deck, walking track, facilities for children and cultural exhibitions. The idea was to modify the way that passing people look to the area, bring different sensations along the promenade, instigate through the forms of metallic structures that functions both as toy as art object. This work was carried out in the fourth semester of undergraduate course in group in the course of Landscape Architecture (2009).

Drought and Green Plaza

Project and drawings of two public squares in the city of S達o Carlos. Two different proposals, talking with the environment and their location. A drought plaza under an overpass, an area currently dimly lit and unattractive to enjoy the place, but with high flow of people all the time, which have requested an answer to improving that place and bring elements to the project that highlighted that space and bring security and attractiveness to passersby. At another site, close but with quite different characteristics, we propose a green plaza beside a government building, whose idea started from the proposal to attend and provide to the user a space to enjoy, a place for socializing and contemplation, which may serve more broadly as a breath to the city. This work was carried out in the fourth semester of undergraduate course in group in the course of Landscape Architecture (2009).

Social Housing

Buildings with five floors and up to 50m² apartments. The internal movement, organization and distribution of places for vehicles, common area and living aspects had great importance to the development of this project. The design seeks the best deployment guidance according to heatstroke, the shortest way between their respective apartments and parking spaces and a large living area. The idea for the apartments was to design a space that is usually neglected for social housing. Through a set of volumetric apartments was possible to create outdoor areas in some units. This work was carried out in the fourth semester of undergraduate course in group in the course of Project II (2009).

Collective Housing

Design of three apartment buildings with 3 types (1,2 and 3 bedrooms). The collective housing was designed according to the best orientation of the apartments in relation to heatstroke and better deployment as the site's topological characteristics. To achieve a high density and still avail a wide open area from the release of a large area, the buildings were designed according to the standards of accessibility, with all areas fully accessible. This work was carried out in the fourth semester of undergraduate course, in group, in the course of Project II (2009).


Collective Housing


Single-family Residences

Two studies on single-family residences. At first, for a young couple whose environments were thought in public and socializing areas to receive guests, and reserved area, with bedroom and study room, with link between environments that also connect to the outside of the house. The second study is for a family with parents and children. In a land with a great slope, the project is based on a reserved area located far from the access road, eastward orientation deployment and integration and opening to the outside. This work was carried out in the third semester of graduation individually in the course of Project II (2009).
