Casa del Niño_Sao Tome and Principe

Collaboration_ Inês Serafim, Joana Tavares, José Correia and Rita Negrão

Project carried out at IST "Semana Relâmpago" where the challenge is to develop a group project within a week. We start from the experiences and culture of Porto Alegre, the importance of family and community, nature, forest, sea - as a source of food, raw materials and leisure, and the pre-existing colonial urbanism that not always make sense for the development of our proposal by now. We distribute the Casa del Niño through four functional nuclei, taking advantage of existing buildings and ruins: through its recovery, transformation and its location to erect a new building. Each nucleus assumes its position along a new axis parallel to the old colossal alley that allows the communication of the housing, social and educational zones. The nuclei themselves allow crossings, creating a grid of permeabilities throughout the village. Given the specificity of Porto Alegre it became necessary to rethink the program according to the experiences of the community, we tried to value them, adapting them progressively and using essentially local techniques and materials such as wood, adobe and stone involving the population in the process of construction and development of Casa del Niño.
