This is one of the most interesting projects I've come across in some time.
Fully functional folly. Hope to see more of this level of innovation globally. Perhaps more of Bratke's work should be published.

Award Entry

Carlos Bratke's bold design for CEPEMA 

The CEPEMA – Environment Education and Research Center, built and supported by Petrobrás (Brazilian oil), for a five-year management course provided by University of São Paulo, acts in the research-promoting field and in the conception of innovative solutions used mainly by industries on the whole and by Petrobrás in particular. It is a relationship center between companies and the University, searching for modern and efficient solutions to environmental issues.

Situated in a 20,000 square meter-area donated to the University by Petrobrás, the center will rely on two large laboratories –chemistry and biochemistry-, six classrooms, an auditorium, a documentation center, storeroom and support area. The facility also includes accommodation for researchers, an administrative sector, a nursery and wild fauna classification and rehabilitation services.
