PAMPULHA INFO POINT

In Pampulha, the term "landscape" unfolds between the natural and the built.
The organic shape of the lagoon, the Burle Marx¥s gardens and Niemeyerís masterpieces make up a dialogue which is a major tourist attraction in Brazil.
The design of an Infopoint in this area plays, both in social terms (programmatic concerns) and architectural, two distinct roles.
If, as a social infrastructure intended to be an urban reference, a required starting point and a timeless guide to the location, as the architectural level, plays a secondary role, a building designed not to be seen but to be felt.
The landscape is the main character and the mere piece of architecture humbly accept the spectator condition.
The project was born of this will, a will of "not be" but, "to provide", highlight what exists. Thus, the Infopoint is discovered in the gardens of Burle Marx, submerged, the level zero.
It's just the beginning, a fleeting passage of the contemplative universe there is to discover this site.
