CityVision just announced the winners of the Rio de Janeiro Competition, their fifth international ideas competition which was launched earlier this year with the purpose of providing a vision on Rio de Janeiro’s future. Upon receiving 68 proposals from all five continents, this year’s jury selected a winner and 9 honorable mentions. The first place was awarded to Donghua Chen from China, for his project ”Ceu de Janeiro” which doesn’t focus on monopoly or unity, but an interchanging environment or integration. More images and information on the winning proposals after the break.
Designed by ABA (About: Blank Architecture), their proposal for the Minor Charges Court Building focuses on creating a building that is a tool to increase productivity in several levels and at the same time does not represent a burden on the budget of the Department of Justice. As part of a package of public investments in the Department of Justice in the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil, ABA was challenged to create a building based on an innovative brief to be replicated nationwide, gathering in the same building all minor charges courts. More images and architects’ description after the break.
