We’ve selected two key issues of the territory, which, have been solved, will also synergetically affect all the others problems. We think of them as a possibilities more than problems.
1.  Lack of strategy in wind, stormwater and green areas use due to mixture of generic modernist approach and spontaneous development on CEAGESP site which leads to extremely low livability of open street space and regular catastrophic passages;
2. Extreme social inequality and poorness which are, on the one hand,  partly caused by spatial segregation and low open street space (mentioned above) and, on the other hand, leads to insuperability of those facts. 
Solving that key issues we can run the leap of the site from randomly postindustrial to self-sustained green socio-tech (re)development. and to give straight, complex and synergistic answers to the questions set.




The design perimeter encloses an expanse of approximately 1.8 square kilometres. It is an industrial belt, which formed along the Tietê and Pinheiros Rivers starting in the late 19th century. 
The site is the 0.64 square kilometre CEAGESP area, with its prominent and distinctive open market pavilion.



The diagram shows the dependence of city temperature on the type of urban environment at night and during the whole day. The analysis shows that in places with urban ponds the temperature regime is the most favourable. 



Green-and-water corridors, created by water transfer system, are directed by the dominant wind direction, to improve natural ventilation. Green area is to decrease the heat isles effect. The new quality of street space leads to a decrease of CO2 production by the transportation system. Ponds, as primary storages, connected to the river are to receive the stormwater fast and to store its high level, which is for gravitation-driven work of the system.  




Water from the primary ponds is spread by the system of open and vaulted transfer channels. Secondary ponds are to damp oscillations of water level in the transition system and to grow fish. Transfer channels are to aim stormwater slowly drain into specially prepared soil, separated from the underlying layers. Wetter soil immediately bordering with a channel is for rain tropical forest, which is evaporating moisture, cooling the contiguous territory and supporting biodiversity. Soil next to it is for local affordable agriculture; excess water from buildings and all the territory is to be filtered in bogs and refill the secondary ponds, which are serving as a water deposit for (mostly water-recycling) vertical farms. 











We are proposing two different tools: first is (storm)water treatment and green economy, another for the building environment. Invented buildings typology is to achieve maximum diversity of people, jobs, and activities with sustainable, yet flexible and participative, step-by-step redevelopment, and special respect for site heritage. Prolongated, sustainable redevelopment of the site based on green socio-tech approach will create some steps of job creation such as groundworks, construction, setting gardens, greenery, education, science and startups in the university campus.












We select two kinds of centralities in connection with the site: first is centralities which are perceived as by most of citizen and city government, another kind is centralities of ongoing social and technology leap. The new regular grid of streets is created by continued streets of the urban fabric. The site will be interconnected with the first kind of centralities by restructured public transportation. The circular bridge connects two riverbanks on the level of the inner square of the favela area.


Prolongated, sustainable redevelopment of the site based on a green socio-tech approach will create some steps of job creation such as groundworks, construction, setting gardens, gardening, greenery processing, technical support, service, primary and high education, science and startups in the university campus. The system of multi-step lifelong involvement and education facilities integrated into the very tissue of CEAGESP makes new jobs affordable for all dwellers of the immediate neighborhood.

Most innovative typology is (both literally and metaphorical) framework for social integration of new families, moving from other parts of the city, future university teachers and students, and involved to the CEAGESP new jobs and lifelong learning system (former) dwellers of the favelas from the other bank. Structural and plumbing framework maybe consequently filled with wall and glazing panels, interior elements and elements of renewable energy/recycling utilities. While the modular structure of filling allows high variability of price per area and level of comfort, preсursory integration of favela dwellers into construction end educational processes on CEAGESP decreases the social tension in this experimental residential structures. Moreover, while some of the future residents may simply pay for the ready units, others will be involved in the participatory filling of the framework, which leads to further social integration. The design has a flexible approach to safety: framework towers are established on top of the utility/commercial platform with a system of stairs and rampant, creating separated “common community ground” similar to a walled tower, which will be with the flexible balance of availability and separation which will be interactively adjusted to the level of street safety during the different steps of redevelopment.
