Porto Alegre, Brazil
The motivation for the project arose from the desire to live in contact with water, but in the city of Porto Alegre, which historically does not have a good relationship with the banks of Guaíba. An alternative could be a boat or motorboat adapted to be a dwelling anchored in a marina, the other could be to design a floating house for this purpose, defining itself by the second. From there, a floating prefabricated module, designed to occupy a standard berth in the marina, would have to be transported to reach the location. The width of the wave is 4m, but the limit width of a truck is 3m, with this, a 3x4m module was proposed, which could be connected with other modules, as needed.
