UFCSPA campus Igara | DESIGN | OSPA


University Campus,

located in

Canoas, Brazil

Although the lot is small, we plan a campus with constant activity and public and fluid space. The Campus Igara is aimed at sport activities, thus, it is necessary to distribute classrooms, sport courts and social areas in the lot in a way that the space is safe and allows not only the carrying out of the activities, but also the mobility as well as the integration of the streets at the back and in the front of the campus. Thinking of such mobility, the court is elevated and the space below is used to host the remaining academic functions, such as the classrooms. The turnstiles, which restrict the access, were placed in the entrance of each building, leaving the campus open and free for people to use it. The premise of the Project is to articulate urban relations, making it more than a public institution, a public space.
