From the architect. The design of the Victor Civita Plaza - Open Museum of Sustainability was based on the ever growing issue of contaminated urban lands. Situated on an existing brown field site in São Paulo, Brazil the design needed to accomodate a large and varied program. More photographs and drawings following the break.

The design became inherent to the composition of the public-private partnership between City and private sector, being revealed as a defining player in the urban political scenario and the regeneration of the brown field in São Paulo.

The architects created a grand wooden deck surface that rests on the site without excavations. Like the structure of a boat, it creates “urban plazas” that accommodate different public uses and guides the user through a lesson on sustainability processes.

How is this a finalist for the Building of the Year awards? Did someone register a bunch of accounts and vote?

Holcim Awards US · December 21, 2010

This is an incredible reuse of a brow field site. The designs is beautiful and playful and the reuse of some of the existing structures is well thought out. Excellent project and a perfect submission to the Holcim Awards for Sustainable Construction. http://on.fb.me/holcim-awards
