Preserved Green Area

With 6,7 million square meters area, the Ufam University Campus is the World’s third biggest green fragment in urban area and the first in Brazil. Such astonishing forest shelters many species of Amazonian fauna (sloths, pacas, collar monkeys) and flora. 

Was in the middle of all this Green area that the architecture Severiano Mário Porto was inspired to develop the architecture project of University Campus. Conceived in order to integrate both forest and Campus, the buildings were made with big green spaces between them and horizontally distributed, being connected through long interlink corridors. All the buildings were covered with a specific type of sun insulating for reduce the inner heat. For the architecture project of University Campus Severiano Mário Porto was awarded with a mention of honor in 1987, from the Brazilian Architect Institute (IAB/RJ). Aiming to preserve the forest area, from 2010, the new facilities adopted the building concept of verticalisation.
