Fernanda Azevedo joins us for a second time to submit her project called The Boom. Last time she submitted her project called The Harboring Island which she created for her MArch Thesis grade 7/8 at Politecnico di Milano. Fernanda is now working at Relativity Architects as a Job Captain in Los Angeles, and she is very excited to have been part of the Architect-USJob+J1 Visa Program.

One of the notable solutions being put into practice to re insure social contact within the city is the New Urbanism, an architectural movement to build new neighborhoods by maximizing opportunities for social exchange at all scales.
Another important point to be taken into consideration is the relationship between the metropolitan region and the single building, the macro and the local scale.
As you can see below, Fernanda provides us with insight into how she views each section of the residential building that seeks to connect the community through thoughtful design. Part of that design is the Boomerang aspect which is emphasized through the Horizontal linearity, and the balconies are placed facing the south of the building in order to create a full sense of the nature outside.
