RESIDENTIAL BUILDING - 2003 Prof Ubirajara Borne Profª Angélica Ponzio
The project developed during the course “Architectural Project II” was essentially an exercise about Porto Alegre’s city local legislations applied to residential buildings. The building would be 9 floors high maximum (comercial rooms at the ground floor, entertainment areas at the second floor and 7 residential floors). The residential units were designed according to the program requirements: studios and one bedroom apartments. An underground parking was also designed. Since the project was developed considering a site located at the south of Brazil, minimizing the heating resulting from the sun exposure was fundamental. Balconies were designed with sliding doors at the studio units. The one bedroom units feature retreated windows. This “mask” is enough to produce a shaded zone at the apartment’s windows, softening the sunlight that hits these north oriented windows. Reinforced concrete and ceramic blocks (external and internal walls) are the basic elements specified to this tower, following the traditional practices in Brazilian residential constructions.

The public announcement of the National Architecture Contest for "Teatro de Natal", a theater on the city of Natal, Rio Grande do Norte state, served as a reference for the work developed as part of the course "Architecural Project VI" in 2005. The course program described the need of three concert halls, with an audience capacity varying between 2000 and 200 people. In order to accomodate three different spaces, with so many different dimensions, a big open space covered by an inclined plane concept was developed. The arrangement between the three halls (right below the plane) is determined by the inclination of the back frontier of the terrain. The purpose of this arrengement is to create an internal circulation street, serving not only as a foyer for the concert halls, but also as an access to the other ambients, such as the bookstore, coffee shop, library, box office, etc. located next to the lower level part of the plane. Access to the underground parking garage is provided through crevices on the volume located in front of the lowest part of the plane, absorbing the natural slope of the terrain. The inclined plane is structured by 4 vertical concrete planes, located at the sides of the terrain and by metallic pillars between the 4 planes. The great walls form an angle with the lot alignment, in order to imposingly indicate the access to the theater. Work developed in partnership with Luciana Colombo.

THE ACCOMMODATION OF THREE THEATER ROOMS IN AN AREA WITH JUST A FEW HIGH BUILDINGS WAS A “VOLUMETRIC CHALLENGE”. THE FIRST SKETCHES WERE ESSENTIAL TO ESTABLISH THE CONCEPT OF ONE SINGLE PLANE COVERING THE WHOLE THEATER AREA. IN A SECOND MOMENT, IT WAS CLEAR THAT THE HUGE INCLINED PLANE NEEDED TO BE DEVELOPED IN ORDER TO DEAL WITH TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY (HOW TO DRAIN RAIN WATER FROM THIS GIGANTIC INCLINED PLANE AND KEED THE INITIAL CONCEPT?). THE THIRD ATTEMPT POINTED TO THE FINAL SOLUTION: TO WORK WITH A “PUNCTURED PLANE”. THE WINDOWS ON THE CEILING WOULD ALLOW A CONTROLLED EXPOSURE TO THE AGRESSIVE SUNLIGHT OF NORTHEAST BRAZIL’S TERRITORY. IN THE FINAL DESIGN, THE WINDOWS’ POSITIONS WERE DETERMINED ACCORDING TO THE CIRCULATION USAGE: THE PATTERN FORMED BY THE WINDOWS IS MORE DENSE IN THE CIRCULATION AREA AND IN THE HALLS FORMED BETWEEN THE THEATER ROOMS.

CITY COUNCIL SQUARE PORTO ALEGRE - 2006 Prof Gilberto Cabral Profª Célia Ferraz Profª Maria Almeida
The docks area located on the port of the city of Porto Alegre (located on the Downtown area) is considered an area with a great urbanistic potential. The huge amount of underutilized spaces and the lack of infrastructure justify the study of significant interventions. One of the case studies was the area located besides the Porto Alegre City Council. The absence of urban limits causes the area to be confused with a public park located next to the Council (Parque Marinha do Brasil). The outcome is a big area with low vegetation and without any specific purpose. The creation of a civic space next to the edification preserves the existing government buildings on the area along the avenue (Av. Loureiro da Silva). Taking advantage of the leveling difference between the soil and the existent dike at Eduardo Pereira Paiva Avenue, bars and comercial stores were allocated with the intention of cheer up the region. Due to the strong tendency of business tourism in Porto Alegre, a hotel and a convention center were located after the City Council. - Urban design for the area next to the Porto Alegre City Council - Tatiana Zucco. - Global design for the revitalization of Guaiba waterfront, on the surroundings of the docks area of Cais do Porto, Porto Alegre-RS-Brazil, developed in partnership with students Patricia Hartmann and Alan Tedesco.

THEATER & ACTING SCHOOL OF PORTO ALEGRE - TEPA - 2007 Prof Gilberto Cabral
Teatro Escola de Porto Alegre - TEPA ( Theater & Acting school of Porto Alegre) is a cultural institution founded in 1996. TEPA is one of the most important educational institutions in the field of scenic arts in Porto Alegre and the state of Rio Grande do Sul, being responsible for the education of many of the successful young actors in the city. The proposition of a new headquarters for TEPA was motivated since the company is currently located in a small facility at downtown Porto Alegre. It lacks infrastructure to host new plays and space to accommodate a larger audience. In addition to this, there is a reduced number of spaces dedicated only to scenic activities in the city . The site for the project was chosen taking into consideration aspects such as: accessibility and attractiveness of the surrounding area. Farroupilha district is a perfect match for this two requirements, since it’s close by downtown and it is an ebullient cultural region in the city. The proximity to Farroupilha’s Park and Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul also makes this site very appropriate for the use proposed. The project is composed by 3 buildings, connected by a large covered space, called internal square. The intention here was to create a covered space in the neighborhood, which could be a gathering place for the community who is visiting the complex and the surrounding areas. The lot chosen has a residential building on it, which is protected by legislation as a historic building. The renovation of this building was proposed, by re-arranging its internal space and transforming it into a bar and a box office. In the opposite lot side, a "Studio Theater” was designed: a flexible space that allows different audience configurations. This way, the school can execute experimental plays, which would enrich the theater’s experience. The “Studio Theater” facade configures a solid box, making a counterpoint in relation to the decorated facade (historic building). Near the lot’s back frontier, the 3 floor building is the closing element in this set, which defines the internal square space dedicated to classrooms, library and administration. This is the building where acting classes should take place. There are two underground levels, destinated to a parking garage and technical area serving the theater. EXISTING BUILDING

Prof Felipe Campelo da Costa
POA 2022 is a brand project, developed in 2011 during the course “Workshop III” (Post-graduation course). The task was simple: to create a brand that could represent a series of improvements that the government would provide to the city, pointing to 2022. The visual identity should stimulate the engagement of Porto Alegre’s population into the renovations that would take almost 10 years to be made (investments in public transportation systems, new parks and recreational facilities and renovations in the current urban furniture). The project was designed taking bees and honeycombs as inspiration. Porto Alegre’s population should be patient and collaborative, as the bees in a big honeycomb, to help to build and maintain the improvements that the city needed. The brand could be applied in different means: bus stops, little gifts or big events. 1 & 2- VISUAL IDENTITY IN GIFTS AND FREEBIES. APPLIED BRAND: BUS STOP

DOWNTOWN PORTO ALEGRE: SIGNAGE SYSTEM
Prof Marcelo Halpern
Downtown areas in Brazilian big cities are constantly suffering from a degradation process as time passes, mostly because of the lack of planning and infrastructure to follow the growth trend of urban populations. With regards to Porto Alegre, capital of the state of Rio Grande do Sul, the downtown district represents a synthesis of the whole city.The set of monuments and buildings from different ages and styles reveals a lot about the cultural diversity aspects, which guided the birth of the small village. Beyond the essential functions found in central areas (commerce and services), Downtown Porto Alegre can be considered a huge connection terminal in terms of transport. People come downtown from all over the city to take another bus or train that leads to their final destiny. Everyday, a crowd of people walks through the same routes, just to reach the public transportation system. That being said, is reasonable to say that people don’t seek the downtown area for leisure. Many of its potential as a cultural and entertainment place during the weekends, for example, is missed, because there is this misconception of a place that is just a “hall” to another point of the city. The aim of this work was to contribute to the discussion about solutions for the revitalization of the urban space, through the elaboration of a signing system to effectively communicate routes and interesting places to the users in their daily routes. Such system would support the establishment of a visual identity that could be easily identified, guiding the population to different parts of Porto Alegre’s Historic District. As a guideline for the project’s visual concept, it was developed an analysis of the most common pavements found around significant buildings and open spaces, creating a visual link between the place’s function and graphic elements. This analysis was the basis for the color scheme used in the project.

LIGHTS OUT HOUSTON - POSTER CONTEST This poster was voted as seccond place in the poster contest promoted by “Lights Out Houston”, in 2014. Poster designed in Photoshop.
Turning off all unnecessary lights inside commercial buildings in Downtown Houston. This is the main purpouse of “Lights Out Houston”, a campaign that happens every year to promote awareness about energy savings and efficiency.
We all have busy routines when we live in big cities like Houston. We have a lot of visual stimuli all the time: computer screens, road lights, outdoor signs, etc. The result is that we often forget about the simple beauties in life, like looking up to the sky and the stars. Even inside a city downtown, it is possible to to that; all we have to do is turn off the lights and let the stars shine. INITIAL CONCEPT FOR THE POSTER AND BACKGROUND STUDIES.
AIA WAI CARD
“Women in Architecture spotlights contributions women have made to the profession and provides a current snapshot of the changing role of women in architecture and design.” (source: https://aiahouston.org/v/event-detail/Women-in-Architecture/gl/).
Women in Architecture Exhibition, an event promoted by the American Institute of Architects - AIA Houston - in 2014, asked the public in general: What do you want to say about architecture?. The answers should be presented in a 6”x6” card. To me, architecture has it’s own language, and it is universally known by those who are passionate for it. Knowledge has no frontiers, so Architecture is the “place” where I can exist as a professional, no matter where I am located at. To represent this concept, I’ve tried to illustrate a globe containing a mix of architectural languages: from Art Nouveau to Modernism; from Mondrian to the ”waves” pattern in Burle Max’s Copacabana Promenade; from Tadao Ando to Frank Ghery... Illustrations by hand, layout and image treatment using Photoshop.
