RECONVEXO is a competition of ideas for the reuse of the remaining staves from the expansion works of Rio de Janeiro’s Subway.
There are more than 6,000 staves originally intended for the tunnel connecting Line 4 to Gávea Station. This stretch should have been inaugurated along with other stretches executed for the Olympic Games Rio2016. Today, due to the financial crisis in the State of Rio de Janeiro, the execution of this expansion work is indefinitely on hold. The result is a huge amount of precast concrete parts with no certain destination. To reinterpret its possible uses, to redefine its meaning: this is the purpose of the RECONVEXO Competition.
