Parque Bossa Nova
Rio de Janeiro - RJ, Brazil
The Bossa Nova Park is located in the Leblon neighborhood, in the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro, an emblematic territory for its historical and cultural representativeness. On a site once occupied by a police battalion, a new showcase for Brazilian culture and art will be built, with its focus on Bossa Nova music. It is a project that opens up to the city, inviting entry through a large square that surrounds the building, enriched by a careful landscape design. The building itself, comprising 5,000 m², pays homage to this very special expression of Brazilian culture, resting gracefully on the ground like the keys of a piano keyboard. Its design aims to reflect, as the lyrics of Tom Jobim's Garota de Ipanema would say "a sweet swing on the way to the sea".
