Downtown Rio Redevelopment (Gasometer)

The land of the Gasometer Masterplan is surrounded by Avenida Francisco Bicalho, Avenida Pedro II and Rua São Cristovão, which are key avenues in the city of Rio de Janeiro in the port region. The industrial installation and warehouses served the city until 2005, when they were dismantled, leaving the area with a large inhabited land surrounded by newest developments and commercial buildings. The project begins with the creation of a North-South structuring axis, represented by the large Central Linear Park, and the concept is to create an integrated sequence of public and semi-public spaces, integrating in the same space housing, service, commerce, connectivity, security and sustainability.
