Biennial of Public Spaces (Rome, 2015) "Favela Drifts"

During the Biennial of Public Spaces (Rome, 2015), I presented the work of the School of Favela Architecture, focused on the Public Spaces of Favelas.

 

This video uses a "drift" format and overviews the long-standing contrasting production of Brazilian public space. On the one hand, there are the empty public areas produced by top-down policies and real estate. On the other hand, there are unpretentious public spaces produced in the favelas.

 

Moreover, three participative projects are displayed to explain favela space: a slide, a pool and a library. These are interventions from the School of Architecture of the Favela, in the Favela Grotto of Santo Antonio (Maceio, Brazil).
