With the purpose of connecting places, levels and people, the project gently touch the ground and breaks down the fisics barriers of the city. The principal intention was to create a axis without a delimited use, letting to the users the mission to occupate and interpret the space.
Some areas was designed to shelter many activities as multi use rooms, bleachers and the relief floor. The metallic structure was adopted with the purpose of achieve big spans and the materiality is all of glass to allow senses swaps and expand the visual permeability.
All the project was made with ArchiCad 23. Many tools were used for the modeling, such as complex profile, solid elements operation, hotlink module, roof and shell. Futhermore, all the graphic representation and diagramation of the boards were assembled with layout book, using regular fills, fills with images, textures and gradient fills.
Therefore, we can prove that ArchiCad it’s a complete platform, enabling its exclusive use, turning the project process unique.
