This rehabilitation project converts a storage space into a stone archive: to showcase the diversities of stone craft and to create a space for architects to contemplate their designs with stone.
As the most primitive construction material, stone comes with dignity and authenticity. However, as construction becomes more and more visually dominated, stones are crafted to be light and polished. The spirit within stones seems to be lost, as stones are gradually substituted by other superficial materials. This project attempts to propose a critic for modern construction.

The city and the environment erodes and pervades the building volume crossed by people flows, nature, wind and rain, creating a fluid and dynamic space in an enchanting sculptural concrete surface. The city and the environment carves a large urban \”cave\” and a vertical chimney that makes its way to the roof, real architectural cavities through which the anthropic and the natural setting establishes deep vital relationships with the building, creating an organic, symbiotic system. People, wind and trees become the lifeblood of the architecture, which is inextricably linked to the setting.

The Minhocão viaduct was built in 1971 as a sign of the modernity who gave to the cars a central place. Today, it appears as a scar in São Paulo downtown. The director plan has until 16 years to transform this elevation of almost 3km. For many years the focus was on the future of the high road, but never its lower part, completely forgotten in this reflection while it is surely the most affected, such as an urban tunnel, source of shade, a leftover of the São Paulo city.
