In August 2010 we were chosen, through an international competition, to design a revitalization project for the Marina da Glória. The project has received a preliminary approval from IPHAN and features some assumptions that make it fit both in the urban setting as well as in the natural landscape. The project emphasizes the public nature of the Marina and an increase in nautical activities, allowing free public access to all areas of the project. The design adopts an organic and coherent solution that matches the curves of the park, allowing the construction to blend in with its environment, while respecting and preserving the original design of the park. The landscape project was designed by Haru Ono, who created several new landscapes, in a total of 50,000 m² of open areas.
