Espaço

Espaço is a versatile, user-friendly and modular platform, aimed at stimulating capillary urban regeneration projects. Developed following a module inspired by the iconic work of Mirthes dos Santos Pinto in São Paulo and by the concrete art of Helio Oiticica, its aim is to directly involve the community in the enhancement process of its living conditions, through an appeal for actual collective progress. The first prototype for espaço, installed outside the school of the CEU circuit in the favela of Paraisópolis, indeed looks like a three-dimensional fuchsia and orange puzzle, with endless composition possibilities: between the soft rubber paving and recycled plastic extruded modules, students can study, play, learn how to tend a small vegetable garden, eat a snack, follow classes in the open air. Some of the modules are benches which can be used as seats or small desks, others are containers for soil: these uses can be upgraded, over time and depending on the requirements, by adding bookshelves and tables.
