URBAN PROJECT AREA
São Paulo City grew on and around a rich hydrological system. São Paulo created the Water Supply Recovery Program aiming, among other aspects, to rescue these waters, to preserve the remaining areas of the springs, to regularize the occupation of the lands that contaminate water, and to encourage leisure in the Billings and Guarapiranga dams.
In this context, Levisky Arquitetos was responsible for the urban requalification project of the Mata Virgem area, also known as Morro dos Macacos, one of the 64 intervention areas of this program, due to its profile permanently threatened by irregular occupations always exposed to landslide risk.
The intervention establishes guidelines to recover waters, land tenure regularization, preservation of the remaining areas near the springs, and the incentive to enjoy the dam for leisure.
The urban plan foresees a linear park, named Mosaico Morro dos Macacos Park, with tree density, public equipment such as daycare centers and squares, and mixed housing and commercial units.
