S : SALGUEIRO
Salgueiro lies on the steep banks of Tijuca Forest. This proposal takes a community of approximately 160 buildings and 750 people using 106 m3 of water per day. Due to the geography of the location, the design proposal links houses in a chain, with each wetland feeding clean water to those ‘downstream’. The basic elements are adapted to the community context, forming a series of new functional green spaces throughout the neighbourhood. Steep slopes in the lower areas of the neighbourhood are terraced to create a new shared community space, with gardens and a wetland and new pedagogical spaces and community facilities such as an outdoor pavilion for events.
