The project rises in two attached sites strategically located in the Vila Nova district, in the center of the country town Indaiatuba, São Paulo, with potential to become a city landmark. The project envisages a residential building with 365 units ranging from 45,50m² to 190m², an office building, a hotel, and more than 90.000m² distributed in two shopping malls. It is also proposed the creation of a public square of nearly 4.000m² next to the access of one of the shopping and residential complex, in order to enhance their connection with the surroundings and the city.

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.

The Franchino mill stands as a metaphor waiting to become habitat, to recover its dimension, to be inhabited to say its words.
The word is mill; meaning use to grind, to pulverise, to turn the heavy things into light ones, to destroy the whole in order to achieve subtlety. It is something used to change the matter into a different thing, the flour of language, a way of naming us.

The strategy: The project stems from the desire to decline the concept of sustainability, specific in this competition, in three distinct areas: environmental sustainability, social sustainability and economic sustainability. The stated goal is to create a system in which the three fields can interact and integrate in order to reach equilibrium without one of the three areas of the system, which normally happens, can take precedence over others. To create this system, one of the aspects taken into consideration was the ability to move away from the traditional housing system in which the threshold of building represents a limit insideoutside trying to include in the own building a whole series of activities that can aggregate functions and increase the opportunities to meet and socialize the inhabitants. The basic idea is that the internal layout of the building is transformed into a “public square” open to the outside integrating, as mentioned, functions traditionally handled from outside and defining the building, in fact, as an hybrid: this combination of features provides the possibility to the residents of the building to meet, socialize and discuss transforming the whole neighborhood in a community, overcoming the possible socio-economic and cultural-linguistic differences.
