The project for the Requalification of Republic Square is based in the need of changing the car circulation in the area, reducing the actual conflict points by the configuration of a roundabout. This solution minimizes the impact of the road and leave the opportunity for the existence of new public spaces.

This way, the 3 principal objectives of the project are: To evidence the relation between the constructed patrimony, urban structure e the memory of the place. To favor the relation with the river. Create an urban space based on the idea of the intermodality as an attractive space.
