The vast majority of cities in the world lost their content when they began to modify three fundamental elements: the river, the street, the square.
Our friends inhabit this strange synthesis world: a world of neighbors. The neighbor is our urban relative and is related to the street or a cousin-brother with a door of the same descent: the elevator.

You only cross a street when you live that street intensely

How about if each needle of acupuncture is a gesture of love for your city?
Start by designing your city. Draw the neighborhood and tag those people you know. Greet them by name.
It is a good acupuncture.

Rush is a friend of perfection. Let's think about the ideal and do what we can. Now

a cidade: cenário do encontro – 1977

A city is much more than a planning model, it is much more than an instrument of economic policy, it is much more than a nucleus of social polarization.
The soul of a city, the vital force that makes it breathe, progress, exist - resides in each of its citizens, in every man who applies it and exhausts the meaning of his life.

Jaime Lerner

A good acupuncture is to allow the normal sound of cities to be heard. Make silence to debug the real sound.
Tune the sound of the city.
My dream was to be a tuner of the sound of cities.
In the past, there were those people who had the noble mission of lighting the gas lamps that illuminated the city.
I wanted to be the sound tuner.

Vita. The turtle is an animal of the best quality. She doesn't get hot, she's in no hurry to take the ride. nor rush out to work. By carrying the house on her back, she is always at work. Everything she does on foot; because it's slow, it doesn't mean that your life is boring. On the contrary. Vita is a lot of fun. because you don't have to travel to go to the cinema; there's always a movie turtle, or movie turtle nearby.

If she wants to do camping, don't even mention it: she is an eternal camping.

We are a family owned and operated business.

During music festival season, everyone envies her and wants a ride.

We are a family owned and operated business.

Have you noticed that the turtle's shell looks like a cell hive ?

We are a family owned and operated business.

Vita's hull represents the various urban functions. The place of work, the place of residence, the place of leisure, in short, an immense shelter.

We are a family owned and operated business.

Have you ever thought about what would happen if the turtle's shell were divided and separated in different places? She would have to spend time putting the hooves together. Even slower as it is. There is no Vita that can take it.

We are a family owned and operated business.

The turtle is the best example of life and work together.

He is not jealous of those who work in a place and take hours to get home. The poor, out of necessity, and the rich, for whom there is no time to enjoy the exclusive place they have chosen.

Working at street level and living on top, she takes it.

She is Gregório's pet. If everyone did like Vita. Gregory would be happy.

Vita, the turtle, is a quality animal.
