Project type:
Residencial Colectiva

The project has the objective of providing housing for the riverside population of Manaus, living in precarious situations. The work is a criticism of the current production of social housing, which creates generic models that ignore the social and cultural particularities of the Amazon region.
Emphasizing the importance of rescuing the qualities of vernacular architecture, the project incorporates features in its design familiar to residents of stilt houses, valuing the Amazonian way of life.
