The architect João Carlos de Castro and I designed a 1.8km linear park at Bernardino de Lucca Avenue in São Roque, Brazil. Our park design won the first prize in an architectural competition organized by the city council. We had a month to develop an integrative program that focused on the needs of the city and its people, including safety for pedestrians, leisure, well-being, use of bicycles as a means of transport, revitalization of the river, and coherent landscaping with the environment.
