“Honor mention” for A-cero in Brazil
A-cero architecture studio, managed by Mr. Joaquin Torres, has achieved the third place in an international competition. The contest’s object was the rehabilitation of a 2.300 km street in Sao Paulo (Brazil).
The A-cero´s work is a dynamic and modern proposal. All its components varie from the beginning to the end of the avenue. It changes with the arrived of the different seasons, in order to create a clear and recognizable street.
A-cero has created a street with more areas for walking and shopping than for driving.
Furthermore, A-cero has given the lead role to the urban furniture: lampposts, window boxes, banks, wastebaskets …These elements have contemporary and functional designs that invite you to walk down the street.
The Frei Caneca´s urban elements have curve and soft lines. They have been designed according to the sinuous lines found along of the street. These shapes are references to the typical Portuguese architecture with blue mosaics.
On the other hand, A-cero has proposed a landscape made of previous and new plants elements. A-cero has add new indigenous species in order to improve the colours and the shade in the street.
