Cairu Square

Cairu Square

This design proposes two distinct axes: a contemplative/tourist axis and another for circulation on a macro-urban scale, separated by an underground road at the back of Modelo Market, which would help clear space between said facility and the sea. The removal of the existing road would allow for the expansion of the square and the creation of a generous belvedere. This set of interventions would result in an unobstructed circulation axis for pedestrians between the Lacerda Elevator and the bay, punctuated by the existing hot spots.
