- The Harbor Service Building aims to become not only a gateway, but also a destination, a metropolitan space for public use and access to the waterfront. Its mass creates a hybrid of typologies. Atop the urban podium sits a contorted crystal, connected by a large atrium. The podium allows for a new harbor park with expansive views towards the City and its harbor. A diamond- shaped depression within the podium anchors the building in the site, articulating the fork at the corner where site directionalities diverge. In contrast to the more stationary podium, the coiling mass containing the harbor offices is orientated to the most important directions of the site with hovering projections. The coiling of the tower creates a partially enveloped central plaza between the offices, which is articulated by a rusticated facade treatment, producing a distinct sense of cavernous interiority. Like a large amethyst geode, the monolithic nature of the exterior mass contrasts with the extremely ornate environment. The visual design is meant to compliment and celebrate the core concepts of the project in a unique and special approach, while highlighting its key features and representing it with a real sense of space and design, that emphasize the emotive qualities and leaves the viewer with a strong experience.

    - The transportation system is an excellent demonstration of how the built environment can influence our daily lives. In the context of the extensive Brazilian “favelas”, where a large amount of population is isolated in the bowels of the city, it is necessary the presence of strong cores of urbanity and connectivity.

    Parametric Architecture curated by Barrios Escudero

    We are attracted to parametric design as a resource with which it is possible to achieve efficiency and fidelity between the design concept and result of a project. Through geometric and algorithmic relations, it also forms a bridge between traditional architectural production and new technological possibilities.
