New Sports Campus In Canoas, Brazil

By:  | October - 27 - 2014

More than a public institution, a public space. This is the premise and guiding goal for the development of the new campus of UFCSPA by OSPA. In an urban context still growing, Campus Igara emerges as a potential articulating element of both spatial and human relationships that surrounds it. A square, fluid and permeable as is supposed to be, in contrast to the volumetric density that the programmatic solution suggests in a first approach.

One site, two faces. Two possibilities of connection with the city. The concept ‘front x back’, ‘public x services’ was never an option. A longitudinal axis, accessible and inviting, connects the two faces – interfaces. Interfaces that despite the hierarchical distinction are equally necessary to the composition of the block, whose face today reveals the scars of our housing policy. Our city, our life. On the face of the buildings, the eyes of the city.
