The subsector A1/Água Branca urbanization plan points to an opportunity to think the city and its articulations as a whole. Instead treating the city in a fragmentary way, lot by lot, this plan is open to new urban design methods. The project proposition seek a balanced and articulated composition through the public fruition between of public and private spaces
The project brings the Tiete river and its borders to the urban scene and thinks the city primarily for the pedestrian experience and perception. For this purpose, it relies legally in the São Paulo’s new Strategic Directive Plan  (PDE- 16.050/2014).
