The proposal articulates a new access path to the São Jorge Castle, through abandoned parcels, qualifying a new public space able to provide collective and artistic events. The organic character and a careful approach to the hill, preserving the potential quality of the void, reflects a concern for an urban experience that is shattered by the excess of informative fragments, advocating the void as a counterpart to balance the experiences of the city, where art and human expression can take place. The argumentation, associated with the proximity to a nearby theatre school (Chapitô) justifies the creation of a space of scenic confluence, stage for artistic and theatrical appropriation.
