[ LAB HISTORY ]

The Laboratory seeks to promote the development of knowledge based on the interpretation of the local infrastructures of a city or a port area, through the development of urban scenarios that allow the requalification of degraded spaces. It seeks to investigate the configurations of these global territories, diagnosing and designing new urban experiences that arise from scenarios stimulated by strategic or systems networks. These point to possibilities of building a relationship between the current cities, their center with the port and its balneário, these, characterized by the tourist aspects connected from the implantation of infrastructures capable of structuring the urban space, enabling the reinvention of complex territories.

 

[ GOALS ]

It consists in the development of methods and tests that promote design strategies through diagrams that can be applied in urban territories and in port waterfronts in a process of degradation, a condition that allows the construction of new urban designs. Urban territories or port waterfronts are the objects for the development of strategies that consist of establishing balance in the urban relationship between the city or a port and balneabilidade, through an urbanization process since that same relationship is directly disturbed by the degradation of the spaces of the port territory. In short, it aims to develop an Urban Project focusing on degraded urban and port territories, promoting the connection between the city, the hinterland/ port sector and the waters.

Among the main guiding elements, the Laboratory will follow as a development thesis the following questions:

These objectives, added to the proposed method of analysis, will experimentally enable the unfold of projective elements that are the structuring of urban, economic, political, sustainable scenarios, through mappings, strategies, diagrams and elements that assist in the production and characterization of urbanity in the territories investigated. Among the objectives proposed by the laboratory and its academic considerations that seek reflections in the context of projective experiments as a method of teaching exercise, this can be the lever for the emergence of other laboratories that will implement new didactic-pedagogical activities.

What urban design strategies are appropriate at this time to provide spaces in a territory / port where urbanity is present in the structuring of a complex and dynamic territory?

1

 

Urban or port territories and their cities are the opportunities for reconfiguration, generating greater urbanity, not just urban or port infrastructure.

2

What urban design strategies are appropriate at this time to provide spaces in a territory / port where urbanity is present in the structuring of a complex and dynamic territory?

3

How can increasingly complex urban infrastructures determine an adequate urban design that meets the needs of users of a territory or port city?

4

How can urban territories or port areas be configured not in mere functional infrastructure, but in urban sectors or pleasant sea fronts?
