The proposal for the Parque Burle Marx offers a mix of offices, office and residential buildings, local commerce, and urban park, and an ecological station for conservation areas. Designed by De Fournier & Associados, the Faunal corridor, which will extend one of the most important biomes of Belo Horizonte, will comprise of volumes harmonically integrated to the morphology of the terrain. More images and architects’ description after the break.

An important aspect of the principles of urban ecology concerns mobility and energy conservation. The mixed/mixed use reduces the need to travel, fulfilling the function of generator and manager of its own social and economic behavior. The behavior of a small centrality, generating new jobs, housing offer, leisure, tourism and retail, distributed in buildings that will replace what was already an old mine.

The user / occupant can work, study, shop, go to movies, sightseeing, go to the doctor, go to the gym, walking through a fantastic park, on foot or by bike. Thus, the impact, so worrying in large enterprises, is minimized. Another aspect that needs to be highlighted is the recovery of the social living. The idea of integrating the local community, encourages exchange, and at the same time meets the needs of the resident and users of services in the city.
