The goal of the project was to create an overpass to connect two lots that are separated by Av. Francisco Bicalho. The western lot features a 5-star hotel and the Convention and Exhibition Centre. The 5-star hotel boasts iconographic architecture with an exposed metal structure. The eastern lot features a variety of shapes and volumes and has been treated with 2 different scales: the pedestrian scale, which relates appropriately to the surrounding buildings and the urban scale, dominated by the verticalization that has been imposed by the needs of the region.
