Photorealistic Exercise

densifying the center

La Boca, Buenos Aires, FADU-UBA, 2009

Buenos Aires is one of the most populated cities in Latin America. Still, it has very low density levels. The traditional block, in which the whole urban structure is based upon, has, throughout the times, presented itself as the main topic for reflection concerning ways of living in the city, having allowed several variations. In the recent past, the appearance of towers has been constant. They allow a huge number of people to be accommodated in a small ground floor area, but, so far, have been generating unpleasant public space situations and have a strong visual impact. This exercise proposes a reflection upon the occupation of a block in a way that could accommodate as many inhabitants as a tower, but in lower heights and in a way that would generate more interesting and human public spaces. Therefore, a scheme was developed in order to fit 200 housing units together, as well as services. Two orders of patios were created: smaller private patios that enlighten the galleries and enable ventilation into the units and bigger public patios that interconnect the four groups of 30 units.

miyashita park - reconvertion of infrastructures

Shibuya, Tokyo, University of Tokyo/FA UTL, 2010

“If we can’t try to turn “disgusting” buildings into resources, then there’s no particularly reason to stay in Tokyo” Yoshiharu Tsukamoto An abandoned parking lot with a decadent green park on top was chosen, for being such an interesting case study of the type of hybrid structures that one can find all over Tokyo, but also due to the possibility that is offered by creating ano ther green area in the highly densifyed city center. The par king space was converted into a public area where a group of pavilions was constructed under the existing structure. The area was occupied by restaurants, public baths (sento), sports facilities, a book shop, a cafeteria and a kindergarten. Over the existing slab, the existing abandoned park was redesigned. It is also created another passage under the railway tracks, which connects the book shop and an amphitheater/gallery, which is the ground floor of a hotel.




school for burma

Competion with Arq. Daniela Andrade and Arq. Fรกbio Rosado

The school is biult in Concrete Hallow Blocks, a local and current building technology. Each brick is designed to interlock itself with others, like puzzle pieces, avoiding shifts and breaches. This way, no mortar is needed to ease the process of deconstruction and re-assembling. By interlocking bricks with bamboo canes, another local abundant material, we assure the module stability, as well as create different environments in both levels - the demanded school amenities on the lower levels and classrooms on the upper one. Each module contains, therefore both a classroom and the subsequent facility. The modules are then connected among each other through a double pathway. This space is both a covered playground and a circulation on the groundfloorm this corridor harbours the canteen and can also be used by the neighbouring comunity as an assembly hall.
