Public building, bridge and apartments building system
Our proposal for housing was based in creating 3 modules, implanted in 7 different ways, with a reinforced concrete structure, in the pattern of HIS and HMP (social affordable housing). The bridge is a transposition that works as a passage and permanence space, connecting the apartment buildings, the public building, and the train station. The bridge is made with a metallic structure, with H-bean steal supporting the concrete slab, with pillars in each 50 meters. The Cultural Center was designed as a building to integrate the public transport (the train station) and the apartment buildings with this public building of leisure, culture, and sports.
Transportation system analysis
The urban mobility it's a complex subject, where the intervention can only be made before deep studies. As an exercise, we made an analysis of the public transport of the subdistrict of Butantã, where's the University City of USP. One example of our conclusions is that the actual roads and streets system is consolidated in a way that new structural lines of transportation is hard to create. So, the intense traffic and bottleneck points are the biggest problems.
