The central neighborhood of São Paulo keeps a lot of history and the ground zero of the city. The project with the Universidade de Sao Paulo School of Architecture and Urbanism (FAUUSP) aims to establish methodological parameters for rehabilitation programs that include the current infrastructure and historical elements that have helped develop the city.

The city of São Paulo is 467 years old and is home to 12,325,232 inhabitants. The industrial development in the 20th century marks its history and impacts how quickly the city became the biggest metropolis in Latin America. Our goal and challenge are developing urban renewal projects associated with the protection of the city memory, creation of new housing areas, production, and employment.
