Impact city Creative city Energy city Think and live the city, the landscape and the territory has proved in recent years affected by the development of networks of infrastructure, assuming a diffusion such as to alter the attractiveness of urban areas. Even the new temporal matrices with which we measure the work activities have resulted in new practices of land use. Resources and assets are no longer conditioned by the availability only effective, but in many cases are selected based on their personal projects. So the impact of this process, in densely populated landscapes, can turn the vision of a metropolitan landscape formed by the constellations of identity and archipelago of relationships. No longer combined by measuring the physical distances between activities and residence but the roots of own ideas in the landscape that you live and what send in the global market. In the megalopolis of Rio de Janeiro, one of the cities with the highest settlement in the world, the preparations for the FIFA World Cup and the Olympics are conditioned by the vigorous expansion of its middle class, by independent media, but also by the growing expectations of its population. The theme of our vision is right in the collision between the metropolis and the region. The impact of the urban landscape of Rio is built into the construction of a new architectural landmark: an endless city. Any more Rio, Niteròi, Marica with their fixed points such as squares or monuments but a endless city which crosses the sea, appropriates and your connections and joints become elements of orientation and identity. The progressive strengthening of environmental compatibility and the reduction of waste is declining volumes of this magma as stacking of containers recovered, crossed by minimum scale infrastructure such as ladders, rope bridges and funiculars able to recover a slow and sustainable use of space. Urban development is entrusted to imagination and to creativity of citizens, capable of activating relationship fields of cultural, social, political continuously meeting / collision between the compact blocks of building massing and authenticity of individual and collective creative actions. In this volumetric addition, people interpret the Landmark architectural figuration with the notes of the chromatic and graphic creative sheet ( music ) that characterizes the people of Rio, revisiting the relationship between solids and voids as a tourist attraction, social occasion or immovable ri-launch in the expressed will of break the formal barriers and submit the Favelas as urban integrated devices into the landscape. Creativity is a value of common interest.
