A VILA VINCULADA
Brasilia’s blocks follow a pattern that constrains the city from creating spaces unique to their topography or need. There is no integration of programing, and most everywhere is only accessible by car. This project aims to redesign a couple of the blocks in Brasilia to demonstrate how mixed use buildings and pedestrian friendly communities are vital to the success of a city.
The name, ‘A Vila Vinculada’, loosely translates from Portuguese to ‘the linked village’. This urban space is composed of 21 mixed use buildings. Each building is connected through a series of pedestrian bridges and ramps that allow for easy access to a variety of programs. Office spaces, retail areas, residential apartments, as well as roof top gardens are all within walking distance. This type of community could be the solution Brasilia's urban design desperately needs.
