CEU Pimentas São Paulo
Most recently finished project by this studio, in São Paulo, Brazil.
This project has been recently awarded by IAB (Brasilian Institute of Architects) with Rino Levi Award 2010 – the best built project of the year.
The Center of Arts and Education of Pimentas is located in Guarulhos, in Pimentas neighborhood, a place with few community equipment directed to education, leisure and sports.
The project is configured in a line, materialized in a large metallic roof that houses in its longitudinal borders different uses, articulated by a void which culminates in a central area dedicated to the use of sports. The aquatic complex is located outside this axis, in the external area. The plain topography and the linear configuration site were determinant for the architectural parti.

The various uses are distributed in blocks, in cast-in-place concrete and pre-cast concrete. Library, classrooms and cafeteria are located in the west side of the axis. On the opposite side, are located the volumes of classrooms, artistic gymnastics, dance and auditoriums.
The central void is a square. Without a program previously defined, it articulates the programs around it, through suggested pathways and bridges on the first floor, and allows various uses along its seats and free spaces. The colors chosen for the inner facades (which variate from yellow to green) contribute to the diversity and ludic atmosphere of this inner square.
