Utilizing existing wetlands and forested areas as a new Central Park to tie a mixed-use area into an organic whole, SOM created an attractive environment where modern design and infrastructure harmonize with the natural ecology. The community incorporates seven districts organized around the central open space. Paulínia Smart Community will enable the City of Paulínia’s long-term growth to be well-planned, prosperous, and green, while setting a new standard for sustainable living in Brazil.

The City of Paulínia and the surrounding Campinas region are growing. SOM's vision for Paulínia brings together enlightened urban planning, intelligent next-generation infrastructure, and innovative building design — all sensitively integrated with the site's existing ecology. The Paulinia Smart Community offers a rich urban fabric woven with great architecture to offer a variety of residential and commercial uses in close proximity to one another.
