A shopping center with 12 shops facing one of the most valuable corners of the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil. The work was conceived and executed with industrial materials, and its macrostructure made in precast concrete, optimizing runtime. The gallery formed by the coverage balance is projected at 1.5 m above street level, not conflict visually with the parking lots that require quick places like this, heavy traffic.
This elevation also provides more visually interesting and protection to shops and users who pass through the gallery. The commercial and necessary exception to such a place was given to the use of anodized aluminum liner in several colors, contrasting with the austerity of concrete.
