Role: part of the research team and co-author of chapters in two of the four books published about the plan 

The Centro Cidadão Plan (PCC) is a master plan developped by professors, students, professionals from various fields and members from society as the result of a partnership between the City of Recife and the Catholic University of Pernambuco (UNICAP).

 

It aims towards an integrated planning, in which all city elements are considered complementary to each other, studying guidelines and strategies related to public and private spaces.

 

The main concept is the ‘Urban Citizen Space’, which considers the existing cultural landscape, the realization of ‘Streets for Citizens’ and the stimulus to the realization of "Urban Architectures" point to the integration between public and private spaces as a fundamental premise.

 

The Plan aims to contribute to the revision of urban-architectural and citizenship values, through the construction of planning references expressed in a set of multidisciplinary products built together with society.
