Project Summary

Fruit Salad

Riverside urban infrastructure redeployment

Flooding along the riverbanks is one of the major problems for Manaus since the levels of the Amazon River greatly vary between the dry and rainy seasons. As a solution, the project proposes to transfer the activities currently on the fragmented waterfront to a floating platform in the river.

A large roof offers protection from sun and rain. The reforestation of the river edge and the creation of a retention lagoon are part of a strategy to delay flooding.
